Famous quotes containing the words history of, rochester and/or history:

    The foregoing generations beheld God and nature face to face; we, through their eyes. Why should not we also enjoy an original relation to the universe? Why should not we have a poetry and philosophy of insight and not of tradition, and a religion by revelation to us, and not the history of theirs?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The clog of all pleasure, the luggage of life,
    Is the best can be said for a very good wife.
