Famous quotes containing the words herman melville, troy, house and/or melville:

    Only by being guilty of Folly does mortal man in many cases arrive at the perception of Sense. A thought which should forever free us from hasty imprecations upon our ever-recurring intervals of Folly; since though Folly be our teacher, Sense is the lesson she teaches; since, if Folly wholly depart from us, Further Sense will be her companion in the flight, and we will be left standing midway in wisdom.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    The soldier takes pride in saluting his Captain,
    The devotee proffers a knee to his Lord,
    Some back a mare thrown from a thoroughbred,
    Troy backed its Helen, Troy died and adored;
    Great nations blossom above,
    A slave bows down to a slave.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Of all the riddles of a married life, said my father ... there is not one that has more intricacies in it than this—that from the very moment the mistress of the house is brought to [child]bed, every female in it ... becomes an inch taller for it....
    I think rather, replied my uncle Toby, that ‘tis we who sink an inch lower.
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)

    The earliest instinct of the child, and the ripest experience of age, unite in affirming simplicity to be the truest and profoundest part for man. Likewise this simplicity is so universal and all-containing as a rule for human life, that the subtlest bad man, and the purest good man, as well as the profoundest wise man, do all alike present it on that side which they socially turn to the inquisitive and unscrupulous world.
    —Herman Melville (1819–1891)
