Famous quotes containing the words history of, lowell and/or history:

    Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and torturous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we called it the word of a demon than the Word of God. It is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind.
    Thomas Paine (1737–1809)

    Absence! My heart grows tense
    as though a harpoon were sparring for the kill.
    —Robert Lowell (1917–1977)

    These anyway might think it was important
    That human history should not be shortened.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
