Famous quotes containing the words germany and/or northern:

    How does Nature deify us with a few and cheap elements! Give me health and a day, and I will make the pomp of emperors ridiculous. The dawn is my Assyria; the sun-set and moon-rise my Paphos, and unimaginable realms of faerie; broad noon shall be my England of the senses and the understanding; the night shall be my Germany of mystic philosophy and dreams.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    ‘What is the world, O soldiers?
    It is I,
    I, this incessant snow,
    This northern sky;
    Walter De La Mare (1873–1956)
