Temple of Literature

Famous quotes containing the words temple and/or literature:

    The difference of the English and Irish character is nowhere more plainly discerned than in their respective kitchens. With the former, this apartment is probably the cleanest, and certainly the most orderly, in the house.... An Irish kitchen ... is usually a temple dedicated to the goddess of disorder; and, too often, joined with her, is the potent deity of dirt.
    Anthony Trollope (1815–1882)

    The high-water mark, so to speak, of Socialist literature is W.H. Auden, a sort of gutless Kipling.
    George Orwell (1903–1950)
