Famous quotes containing the words nods and/or homer:
“That sort of half sigh, which, accompanied by two or three slight nods of the head, is pitys small change in general society.”
—Charles Dickens (18121870)
“But it is fit that the Past should be dark; though the darkness is not so much a quality of the past as of tradition. It is not a distance of time, but a distance of relation, which makes thus dusky its memorials. What is near to the heart of this generation is fair and bright still. Greece lies outspread fair and sunshiny in floods of light, for there is the sun and daylight in her literature and art. Homer does not allow us to forget that the sun shone,nor Phidias, nor the Parthenon.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
