Famous quotes containing the words deities and/or significant:

    The gods themselves,
    Humbling their deities to love, have taken
    The shapes of beasts upon them. Jupiter
    Became a bull, and bellowed; the green Neptune
    A ram, and bleated; and the fire-robed god,
    Golden Apollo, a poor humble swain.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Grandparents can be role models about areas that may not be significant to young children directly but that can teach them about patience and courage when we are ill, or handicapped by problems of aging. Our attitudes toward retirement, marriage, recreation, even our feelings about death and dying may make much more of an impression than we realize.
    Eda Le Shan (20th century)
