Famous quotes containing the words city and/or ideal:

    But they who give straight judgements to strangers and to those of the land and do not transgress what is just, for them the city flourishes and its people prosper.
    Hesiod (c. 8th century B.C.)

    Some day the soft Ideal that we wooed
    Confronts us fiercely, foe-beset, pursued,
    And cries reproachful: “Was it then my praise,
    And not myself was loved? Prove now thy truth;
    I claim of thee the promise of thy youth.”
    James Russell Lowell (1819–1891)
