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 is fatally easy for Western folk, who have discarded chastity as a value for themselves, to suppose that it can have no value for anyone else. At the same time as Californians try to re-invent “celibacy,” by which they seem to mean perverse restraint, the rest of us call societies which place a high value on chastity “backward.”
    Germaine Greer (b. 1939)
