Famous quotes containing the words isles and/or western:

    The isles of Greece! the isles of Greece
    Where burning Sappho loved and sung,
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    It’s a queer sensation, this secret belief that one stands on the brink of the world’s greatest catastrophe. For it means the fall of Western Europe, as it fell in the fourth century. It recurs to me every November, and culminates every December. I have to get over it as I can, and hide, for fear of being sent to an asylum.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)
