    On desperate seas long wont to roam,
    The hyacinth hair, thy classic face,
    Thy Naiad airs have brought me home
    To the glory that was Greece,
    And the grandeur that was Rome.
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)

    A great city, whose image dwells in the memory of man, is the type of some great idea. Rome represents conquest; Faith hovers over the towers of Jerusalem; and Athens embodies the pre-eminent quality of the antique world, Art.
    Benjamin Disraeli (1804–1881)

    When you model yourself on people, you should try to resemble their good sides.
    Molière [Jean Baptiste Poquelin] (1622–1673)

    Time that scatters hair upon a head
    Spreads the ice sheet on the shaven lawn;
    Signing an annual permit for the frost....

    Man is a stream whose source is hidden. Our being is descending into us from we know not whence. The most exact calculator has no prescience that somewhat incalculable may not balk the very next moment. I am constrained every moment to acknowledge a higher origin for events than the will I call mine.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Everything that explains the world has in fact explained a world that does not exist, a world in which men are at the center of the human enterprise and women are at the margin “helping” them. Such a world does not exist—never has.
    Gerda Lerner (b. 1920)

    Genius detects through the fly, through the caterpillar, through the grub, through the egg, the constant individual; through countless individuals the fixed species; through many species the genus; through all genera the steadfast type; through all the kingdoms of organized life the eternal unity. Nature is a mutable cloud which is always and never the same.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Things will not mourn you, people will.
    Hawaiian saying no. 191, ‘lelo No’Eau, collected, translated, and annotated by Mary Kawena Pukui, Bishop Museum Press, Hawaii (1983)

    It is one thing to show a man that he is in an error, and another to put him in possession of the truth.
    John Locke (1632–1704)
