Famous quotes containing the word realm:

    The things of this world reveal their essential absurdity when they are put in the Venetian context. In the unreal realm of the canals, as in a Swiftian Lilliput, the real world, with its contrivances, appears as a vast folly.
    Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)

    The daughter of debate, that eke discord doth sow,
    Shall reap no gain where former rule hath taught still peace to
    grow.
    No foreign banished wight shall anchor in this port;
    Our realm it brooks no stranger’s force, let them elsewhere resort.
    Elizabeth I (1533–1603)

    The fate of our times is characterized by rationalization and intellectualization and, above all, by the “disenchantment of the world.” Precisely the ultimate and most sublime values have retreated from public life either into the transcendental realm of mystic life or into the brotherliness of direct and personal human relations. It is not accidental that our greatest art is intimate and not monumental.
    Max Weber (1864–1920)
