Statues

Famous quotes containing the word statues:

    There’s a wonderful family called Stein:
    There’s Gert and there’s Ep and there’s Ein.
    Gert’s poems are bunk,
    Ep’s statues are junk,
    And no-one can understand Ein.
    Anonymous.

    But have you wine and music still,
    And statues and a bright-eyed love,
    And foolish thoughts of good and ill,
    And prayers to them who sit above?
    James Elroy Flecker (1884–1919)

    And are not men than they more blind,
    Who having eyes yet never find
    The bliss in which they move:
    Like statues dead
    They up and down are carried,
    Yet neither see nor love.
    Thomas Traherne (1636–1674)
