Famous quotes containing the words golden and/or age:

    Your golden hair Margarete
    your ashen hair Shulamith.
    Paul Celan [Paul Antschel] (1920–1970)

    Every Age has its own peculiar faith.... Any attempt to translate into facts the mission of one Age with the machinery of another, can only end in an indefinite series of abortive efforts. Defeated by the utter want of proportion between the means and the end, such attempts might produce martyrs, but never lead to victory.
    Giuseppe Mazzini (1805–1872)
