Famous quotes containing the words mythology and/or breton:

    I walk out into a nature such as the old prophets and poets, Menu, Moses, Homer, Chaucer, walked in. You may name it America, but it is not America; neither Americus Vespucius, nor Columbus, nor the rest were the discoverers of it. There is a truer account of it in mythology than in any history of America, so called, that I have seen.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    In the world we live in ... everything militates in favor of things that have not yet happened, of things that will never happen again.
    —André Breton (1896–1966)
