Famous quotes containing the word homage:

    Your business is not to catch men with show,
    With homage to the perishable clay,
    But lift them over it, ignore it all,
    Make them forget there’s such a thing as flesh.
    Your business is to paint the souls of men—
    Robert Browning (1812–1889)

    By common consent of all the nations and all the ages the most valuable thing in this world is the homage of men, whether deserved or undeserved.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    I am so much a Unitarian as this: that I believe the human mind can admit but one God, and that every effort to pay religious homage to more than one being goes to take away all right ideas.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
