Famous quotes containing the words literature and/or century:

    Converse with a mind that is grandly simple, and literature looks like word-catching. The simplest utterances are worthiest to be written, yet are they so cheap, and so things of course, that, in the infinite riches of the soul, it is like gathering a few pebbles off the ground, or bottling a little air in a phial, when the whole earth and the whole atmosphere are ours.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Do not let a flattering woman coax and wheedle you and deceive you; she is after your barn.
    Hesiod (c. 8th century B.C.)
