Famous quotes containing the words provincial and/or symbols:

    With respect to a true culture and manhood, we are essentially provincial still, not metropolitan,—mere Jonathans. We are provincial, because we do not find at home our standards; because we do not worship truth, but the reflection of truth; because we are warped and narrowed by an exclusive devotion to trade and commerce and manufacturers and agriculture and the like, which are but means, and not the end.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    That way of inspiration
    is always open,
    and open to everyone;
    it acts as go-between, interpreter,
    it explains symbols of the past
    in to-day’s imagery.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
