Famous quotes containing the word grecian:

    Two thousand summers have imparted to the monuments of Grecian literature, as to her marbles, only a maturer golden and autumnal tint, for they have carried their own serene and celestial atmosphere into all lands to protect them against the corrosion of time.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Such were garrulous and noisy eras, which no longer yield any sound, but the Grecian or silent and melodious era is ever sounding and resounding in the ears of men.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The moon shines bright. In such a night as this,
    When the sweet wind did gently kiss the trees,
    And they did make no noise, in such a night
    Troilus methinks mounted the Troyan walls,
    And sighed his soul toward the Grecian tents,
    Where Cressid lay that night.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
