Famous quotes containing the word mythology:

    This is the frost coming out of the ground; this is Spring. It precedes the green and flowery spring, as mythology precedes regular poetry. I know of nothing more purgative of winter fumes and indigestions. It convinces me that Earth is still in her swaddling-clothes, and stretches forth baby fingers on every side.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    In the United States there’s a Puritan ethic and a mythology of success. He who is successful is good. In Latin countries, in Catholic countries, a successful person is a sinner.
    Umberto Eco (b. 1932)

    If science fiction is the mythology of modern technology, then its myth is tragic.
    Ursula K. Le Guin (b. 1929)
