Famous quotes containing the word symbol:

    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    Every natural fact is a symbol of some spiritual fact. Every appearance in nature corresponds to some state of the mind, and that state of the mind can only be described by presenting that natural appearance as its picture.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The horse, the horse! The symbol of surging potency and power of movement, of action, in man.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
