Egypt

Famous quotes containing the word egypt:

    The great pagan world of which Egypt and Greece were the last living terms ... once had a vast and perhaps perfect science of its own, a science in terms of life. In our era this science crumbled into magic and charlatanry. But even wisdom crumbles.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    Hieratic, slim and fair,
    the tracery written here,
    proclaims what’s left unsaid
    in Egypt of her dead.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    It flows through old hushed Egypt and its sands,
    Like some grave mighty thought threading a dream,
    Leigh Hunt (1784–1859)
