Quotes[edit]

  • A great city, whose image dwells in the memory of man, is the type of some great idea. Rome represents conquest; Faith hovers over the towers of Jerusalem; and Athens embodies the pre-eminent quality of the antique world, Art.
  • Athens, the eye of Greece, mother of arts and eloquence, native to famous wits.
