Famous quotes containing the words seventeenth century, century and/or seventeenth:

    It is as if, to every period of history, there corresponded a privileged age and a particular division of human life: “youth” is the privileged age of the seventeenth century, childhood of the nineteenth, adolescence of the twentieth.
    Philippe Ariés (20th century)

    For both faith and want of faith have destroyed men alike.
    Hesiod (c. 8th century B.C.)

    Nothing in medieval dress distinguished the child from the adult. In the seventeenth century, however, the child, or at least the child of quality, whether noble or middle-class, ceased to be dressed like the grown-up. This is the essential point: henceforth he had an outfit reserved for his age group, which set him apart from the adults. These can be seen from the first glance at any of the numerous child portraits painted at the beginning of the seventeenth century.
    Philippe Ariés (20th century)
