Famous quotes containing the words warner and/or homer:
“What a man needs in gardening is a cast-iron back, with a hinge in it.”
—Charles Dudley Warner (18291900)
“But it is fit that the Past should be dark; though the darkness is not so much a quality of the past as of tradition. It is not a distance of time, but a distance of relation, which makes thus dusky its memorials. What is near to the heart of this generation is fair and bright still. Greece lies outspread fair and sunshiny in floods of light, for there is the sun and daylight in her literature and art. Homer does not allow us to forget that the sun shone,nor Phidias, nor the Parthenon.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
