Tablets

Famous quotes containing the word tablets:

    For Hades is mighty in calling men to account below the earth, and with a mind that records in tablets he surveys all things.
    Aeschylus (525–456 B.C.)

    Moses came down from Mount Sinai. As he came down from the mountain with the two tablets of the covenant in his hand, Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because he had been talking with God.
    Bible: Hebrew, Exodus 34:29.

    The Anglo-American can indeed cut down, and grub up all this waving forest, and make a stump speech, and vote for Buchanan on its ruins, but he cannot converse with the spirit of the tree he fells, he cannot read the poetry and mythology which retire as he advances. He ignorantly erases mythological tablets in order to print his handbills and town-meeting warrants on them.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
