Famous quotes containing the word renewal:

    There must be no cessation
    Of motion, or of the noise of motion,
    The renewal of noise
    And manifold continuation....
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    We sing the funeral, as goes the custom, with the hymn of the Dead. But Manuel, he chose a hymn for the living: the song of the coumbite, the song of the earth, of the water, the plants, of fellowship between peasants because he wanted, as I now understand it, that his death for you be the renewal of life.
    Jacques Roumain (1907–1945)

    Every epoch which seeks renewal first projects its ideal into a human form. In order to comprehend its own essence tangibly, the spirit of the time chooses a human being as its prototype and raising this single individual, often one upon whom it has chanced to come, far beyond his measure, the spirit enthuses itself for its own enthusiasm.
    Stefan Zweig (18811942)
