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

    The ancients of the ideal description, instead of trying to turn their impracticable chimeras, as does the modern dreamer, into social and political prodigies, deposited them in great works of art, which still live while states and constitutions have perished, bequeathing to posterity not shameful defects but triumphant successes.
    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)

    The house with no child in it is a house with nothing in it.
    Welsh proverb, as quoted in The Joys of Having a Child by Bill and Gloria Adler (1993)

    It is not the purpose of literature to purvey news. For news consult the Almanac de Gotha.
    —Herman Melville (1819–1891)
