Mystes Greek quotes by Norman F. Cantor
#1. What the Acropolis in Athens looked like, including the Parthenon of the gods, is best told today at the British Museum in London, which houses the marble statuary removed by Lord Elgin, the British ambassador to Constantinople in 1801-05, and sold at a knockdown price (only 23 million dollars in our money) to the British Museum a couple of decades later. Although Elgin had or bought the permission of the Turkish sultan then ruling Greece, some contemporaries, including the poet and pro-Greek activist Lord Byron, already denounced the Elgin Marbles as 'pillage.' So the Greek government has claimed since the 1970s, but the British won't return them. #Quote by Norman F. Cantor
Mystes Greek quotes by Oswald Spengler
#2. What the Greek called Kosmos was the image of a world that is not continuous but complete. Inevitably, then, the Greek man himself was not a series but a term.

What his philosophers occasionally told him on the subject they had heard, not experienced, and what a few brilliant minds in the Asiatic-Greek cities (such as Hipparchus and Aristarchus) discovered was rejected alike by the Stoic and by the Aristotelian, and outside a small professional circle not even noticed. #Quote by Oswald Spengler
Mystes Greek quotes by J.K. Rowling
#3. Of all the subjects on this planet, I think my parents would have been hard put to name one less useful than Greek mythology to securing the keys to an executive bathroom. #Quote by J.K. Rowling

#4. AGAMEMNON: Oh immovable law of heaven! Oh my anguish, my relentless fate!

CLYTEMNESTRA: Yours? Mine. Hers. No relenting for any of us. #Quote by Euripides
Mystes Greek quotes by Chet Baker
#5. Your looks are laughable, unphotographable, yet you're my favorite work of art. Is your figure less than Greek, is your mouth a little weak? When you open it to speak, are you smart? #Quote by Chet Baker
Mystes Greek quotes by Andy Serkis
#6. (Greek) Theater started off and used masks and Kabuki, in the East, they used mask-work. And then, Commedia dell'arte in Italy and then, you know, we're part of an acting tradition and, and performance capture is no different. #Quote by Andy Serkis
Mystes Greek quotes by Helen Keller
#7. Great poetry, whether written in Greek or in English, needs no other interpreter than a responsive heart. #Quote by Helen Keller
Mystes Greek quotes by Leonard Shlain
#8. Edited by mostly unknown scholars in A.D. 367, compiled from documents written 30 to 110 years after the Christ event by no one who was present at the events, and composed for the most part by unknown authors in the Greek language that Jesus never spoke, it is held up as the only true record of the Christ story. #Quote by Leonard Shlain
Mystes Greek quotes by Dorothy Graham
#9. The test conditions that are chosen will depend on the test strategy or detailed test approach. For example, they might be based on risk, models of the system, likely failures, compliance requirements, expert advice or heuristics. The word 'heuristic' comes from the same Greek root as eureka, which means 'I find'. A heuristic is a way of directing your attention, a common sense rule useful in solving a problem. #Quote by Dorothy Graham
Mystes Greek quotes by Terry Eagleton
#10. Marx was troubled by the question of why ancient Greek art retained an 'eternal charm', even though the social conditions which produced it had long passed; but how do we know that it will remain 'eternally' charming, since history has not yet ended? Let us imagine that by dint of some deft archaeological research we discovered a great deal more about what ancient Greek tragedy actually meant to its original audiences, recognized that these concerns were utterly remote from our own, and began to read the plays again in the light of this deepened knowledge. One result might be that we stopped enjoying them. We might come to see that we had enjoyed them previously because we were unwittingly reading them in the light of our own preoccupations; once this became less possible, the drama might cease to speak at all significantly to us.
The fact that we always interpret literary works to some extent in the light of our own concerns - indeed that in one sense of 'our own concerns' we are incapable of doing anything else - might be one reason why certain works of literature seem to retain their value across the centuries. It may be, of course, that we still share many preoccupations with the work itself; but it may also be that people have not actually been valuing the 'same' work at all, even though they may think they have. 'Our' Homer is not identical with the Homer of the Middle Ages, nor 'our' Shakespeare with that of his contemporaries; it is rather that different historic #Quote by Terry Eagleton
Mystes Greek quotes by Beth Moore
#11. Into the depths of Scripture or researched a single Greek word. They simply taught what they knew. I don't know any other #Quote by Beth Moore
Mystes Greek quotes by Kathleen Tessaro
#12. Most people assume that a muse is a creature of perfect beauty, poise and grace. Like the creatures from Greek mythology. They're wrong. In fact, there should be a marked absence of perfection in a muse
a gaping hole between what she is and what she might be. The ideal muse is a woman whose rough edges and contradictions drive you to fill in the blanks of her character. She is the irritant to your creativity. A remarkable possibility, waiting to be formed. #Quote by Kathleen Tessaro
Mystes Greek quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#13. The Greeks, with their truly healthy culture, have once and for all justified philosophy simply by having engaged in it, and having engaged in it more fully than any other people. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche

Mystes Greek quotes by Rachel Ingalls
#16. I bitterly resent all that wasted time. And what I resent most of all is that the ones I did get never, never looked like the Greek statues."
"The Greek-statue types may have been too busy going out with other boys to notice you. #Quote by Rachel Ingalls
Mystes Greek quotes by Sarah Diemer
#17. You see, I have been content with the darkness. But then you came, with your fire. And you reminded me about the stars, shining in the dark, never wavering. #Quote by Sarah Diemer
Mystes Greek quotes by Jim Butcher
#18. Thomas looked like someone's painting of the forgotten Greek god of body cologne. He had long hair so dark that light itself could not escape it, and even fresh from the shower it was starting to curl. His eyes were the color of thunderclouds, and he never did a single moment of exercise to earn the gratuitous amount of ripple in his musculature. He was wearing jeans and no shirt
his standard household uniform. I once saw him answer the door to speak to a female missionary in the same outfit, and she'd assaulted him in a cloud of forgotten copies of The Watchtower. The tooth marks she left had been interesting. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Mystes Greek quotes by John Boyne
#19. You look like a Greek God sent down by the immortal Zeus from Mount Olympus to taunt the rest of us inferior beings with your astonishing beauty, I said, which somehow in translation came out as "you look fine, why? #Quote by John Boyne
Mystes Greek quotes by Philip Roth
#20. If he were around this place as a professor, he could teach 'Appropriate Behavior in Classical Greek Drama,' a course that would be over before it began. #Quote by Philip Roth
Mystes Greek quotes by Marie Phillips
#21. Eros mumbled something.
"I'm sorry?" said Aphrodite.
"Whatwouldjesusdo."
"What would Jesus do?" said Aphrodite. "Let me tell you something. Jesus was a very good boy. He would do exactly what his mother told him to."
"But-"
"Jesus was supposed to be a god, right?" said Aphrodite. "Ergo, he did revenge. All gods do revenge."
"Not exactly. He said you should turn the other-"
"What else does your Jesus say?" Aphrodite interrupted.
"I thought you didn't care."
"Let me see," said Aphrodite. "I remember. 'Honour thy father and mother'."
"One, that wasn't Jesus. And two, it's hard to honour your father when there are so many candidates for who he might be."
"That's not very nice," said Aphrodite. "You know who your father is. It's your cousin Ares."

"I wish the Virgin Mary was my mother," grumbled Eros eventually. #Quote by Marie Phillips
Mystes Greek quotes by Michael Lewis
#22. Individual Greeks are delightful: funny, warm, smart, and good company. I left two dozen interviews saying to myself, "What great people!" They do not share the sentiment about one another: the hardest thing to do in Greece is to get one Greek to compliment another behind his back. No success of any kind is regarded without suspicion. Everyone is pretty sure everyone is cheating on his taxes, or bribing politicians, or taking bribes, or lying about the value of his real estate. And this total absence of faith in one another is self-reinforcing. The epidemic of lying and cheating and stealing makes any sort of civic life impossible; the collapse of civic life only encourages more lying, cheating, and stealing. Lacking faith in one another, they fall back on themselves and their families. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Mystes Greek quotes by Sappho

Mystes Greek quotes by Moliere
#24. A laudation in Greek is of marvellous efficacy on the title-page of a book. #Quote by Moliere
Mystes Greek quotes by Neil Gaiman

Mystes Greek quotes by Stacy Schiff
#28. Nor was there a Greek word for "incest." The Ptolemies carried the practice to an extreme. Of the fifteen or so family marriages, at least ten were full brother-sister unions. #Quote by Stacy Schiff
Mystes Greek quotes by Kenda Creasy Dean
#29. Part of our skittishness about Christian perfection is linguistic confusion. The English word "perfect" has absorbed the Greek notion of "teleos". When the Greeks looked at a building's blueprint, they pictured the building whole and complete. They envisioned the blueprint finished down to the bathroom tile and announced, "Ah, this is perfect." The problem is that "teleos" suggests that perfection is something we can build or achieve. The Hebrews looked at the same blueprint more practically. They envisioned the process of building from hard hats to hammers, from scaffolding to skylights. "Ah," the Hebrews said. "This is perfect." The Hebrews and the early Christians understood perfection as a process, not a product. Our identity as Christians depends upon life lived in relationship with God, not upon the quality of our achievements. #Quote by Kenda Creasy Dean
Mystes Greek quotes by Ismail Kadare
#30. I am of the opinion that I am not a political writer, and, moreover, that as far as true literature is concerned, there actually are no political writers. I think that my writing is no more political than ancient Greek theatre. I would have become the writer I am in any political regime. #Quote by Ismail Kadare
Mystes Greek quotes by David Suzuki
#31. Eco" comes from the Greek word oikos, meaning home. Ecology is the study of home, while economics is the management of home. Ecologists attempt to define the conditions and principles that govern life's ability to flourish through time and change. Societies and our constructs, like economics, must adapt to those fundamentals defined by ecology. The challenge today is to put the "eco" back into economics and every aspect of our lives. #Quote by David Suzuki
Mystes Greek quotes by Janette Oke
#32. You are not the only one who has spent the night in reflection. The final festival of the spring season is this coming Sabbath, fifty days after Passover. In Hebrew it is called Shavuot, though many now call it by its Greek name, Pentecost. It marks the end of the spring harvest, and the day carries a divine purpose. We are called to draw near to the throne of God, to receive an earthly foretaste of the splendor to come. #Quote by Janette Oke
Mystes Greek quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#33. You can be a German, you can be a Greek or a Spanish or a Japanese etc, but your true nation is the whole humanity! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Mystes Greek quotes by Nickolas Irons
#34. Life is about whoyou are and what you believen. Or life is about who you are and what you do. So if you try something stupid think then keep. Life is a gift from god to live. Love is a gift from a Greek god and that you share it with some one. #Quote by Nickolas Irons
Mystes Greek quotes by Euclid
#35. The laws of nature are but the mathematical thoughts of God. #Quote by Euclid
Mystes Greek quotes by James Costos
#36. My mom and dad are second-generation Greek-Americans who instilled in our middle-class family the values of hard work, self-reliance, and service, exemplified by my father's tenure as a U.S. Marine who was stationed at Camp David under President Truman. #Quote by James Costos
