Famous quotes containing the word greek:

    I am not a Catholic; but I consider the Christian idea, which has its roots in Greek thought and in the course of the centuries has nourished all of our European civilization, as something that one cannot renounce without becoming degraded.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)

    The uppermost idea with Hellenism is to see things as they really are; the uppermost ideas with Hebraism is conduct and obedience. Nothing can do away with this ineffaceable difference. The Greek quarrel with the body and its desires is, that they hinder right thinking; the Hebrew quarrel with them is, that they hinder right acting.
    Matthew Arnold (1822–1888)

    In all the good Greek of Plato
    I lack my roastbeef and potato.

    A better man was Aristotle,
    Pulling steady on the bottle.
    John Crowe Ransom (1888–1974)
