Famous quotes containing the words provincial, symbols and/or east:

    The dead level of provincial existence.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)

    The use of symbols has a certain power of emancipation and exhilaration for all men. We seem to be touched by a wand, which makes us dance and run about happily, like children. We are like persons who come out of a cave or cellar into the open air. This is the effect on us of tropes, fables, oracles, and all poetic forms. Poets are thus liberating gods.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The beds i’ th’ East are soft.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
