Famous quotes containing the words west and/or greece:

    These were not men, they were battlefields. And over them, like the sky, arched their sense of harmony, their sense of beauty and rest against which their misery and their struggles were an offence, to which their misery and their struggles were the only approaches they could make, of which their misery and their struggles were an integral part.
    —Rebecca West (1892–1983)

    When a man hath no freedom to fight for at home,
    Let him combat for that of his neighbors;
    Let him think of the glories of Greece and of Rome,
    And get knocked on the head for his labors.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
