Famous quotes containing the word cave:

    What difference is there, do you think, between those in Plato’s cave who can only marvel at the shadows and images of various objects, provided they are content and don’t know what they miss, and the philosopher who has emerged from the cave and sees the real things?
    Desiderius Erasmus (c. 1466–1536)

    Nothing is uglier than the sinner, nothing so leprous or fetid; the scar of his crimes is still raw, and he stinks like the cave of Hell.
    Aurelius Clemens Prudentius (c. 348–405)

    In such an armor he may rise and raid
    The dark cave after midnight, unafraid....
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)
