Famous quotes containing the word egypt:
“It is evident, from their method of propagation, that a couple of cats, in fifty years, would stock a whole kingdom; and if that religious veneration were still paid them, it would, in twenty more, not only be easier in Egypt to find a god than a man, which Petronius says was the case in some parts of Italy; but the gods must at last entirely starve the men, and leave themselves neither priests nor votaries remaining.”
—David Hume (17111776)
“There is no Champollion to decipher the Egypt of every mans and every beings face. Physiognomy, like every other human science, is but a passing fable.”
—Herman Melville (18191891)
“It flows through old hushed Egypt and its sands,
Like some grave mighty thought threading a dream,”
—Leigh Hunt (17841859)
