Famous quotes containing the words herbert and/or benjamin:

    My tender age in sorrow did begin:
    And still with sicknesses and shame
    Thou did’st so punish sin,
    That I became
    Most thin.
    With Thee
    Let me combine
    And feel this day Thy victory;
    —George Herbert (1593–1633)

    Nothing is poorer than a truth expressed as it was thought. Committed to writing in such cases, it is not even a bad photograph.... Truth wants to be startled abruptly, at one stroke, from her self-immersion, whether by uproar, music or cries for help.
    —Walter Benjamin (1892–1940)
