Famous quotes containing the words summer and/or greece:

    The lover never sees personal resemblances in his mistress to her kindred or to others. His friends find in her a likeness to her mother, or her sisters, or to persons not of her blood. The lover sees no resemblance except to summer evenings and diamond mornings, to rainbows and the song of birds.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Tell Greece that her spring has been taken out of her year.
    Herodotus (c. 484–424 B.C.)
