Famous quotes containing the word temples:

    Goddesses never die. They slip in and out of the world’s cities, in and out of our dreams, century after century, answering to different names, dressed differently, perhaps even disguised, perhaps idle and unemployed, their official altars abandoned, their temples feared or simply forgotten.
    Phyllis Chesler (b. 1941)

    These temples grew as grows the grass;
    Art might obey, but not surpass.
    The passive Master lent his hand
    To the vast soul that o’er him planned.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    This city now doth, like a garment, wear
    The beauty of the morning; silent bare,
    Ships, towers, domes, theatres and temples lie
    Open unto the fields and to the sky;
    All bright and glittering in the smokeless air.
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)
