Famous quotes containing the word muses:

    As for the graces of expression, a great thought is never found in a mean dress; but ... the nine Muses and the three Graces will have conspired to clothe it in fit phrase. Its education has always been liberal, and its implied wit can endow a college.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Because the Muses never knew their pains.
    They boast their peasants’ pipes, but peasants now
    Resign their pipes and plod behind the plough;
    George Crabbe (1754–1832)

    Happy is the man whom the Muses love: sweet speech flows from his mouth.
    Hesiod (c. 8th century B.C.)
