Sivu 303 - Keep Ithaka always in your mind. Arriving there is what you're destined for. But don't hurry the journey at all. Better if it lasts for years, so you're old by the time you reach the island, wealthy with all you've gained on the way, not expecting Ithaka to make you rich.
Sivu 154 - Plutarch's words, the whole of the vypa <j>vms — not only the liquid fire in the grape, but the sap thrusting in a young tree, the blood pounding in the veins of a young animal, all the mysterious and uncontrollable tides that ebb and flow in the life of nature.
Sivu 145 - This monster had the face of a woman, the body and feet and tail of a lion, and the wings of a bird...
Sivu 303 - ... gained on the way, not expecting Ithaka to make you rich. Ithaka gave you the marvelous journey. Without her you wouldn't have set out. She has nothing left to give you now. And if you find her poor, Ithaka won't have fooled you. Wise as you will have become, so full of experience, you'll have understood by then what these Ithakas mean.
Sivu 22 - EO James, Myth and Ritual in the Ancient Near East (London, 1958), ch. 5, "The Myth and Ritual of Creation," 144-77, discusses various Near Eastern creation stories along with those from Greece.
Sivu 201 - The progress of life is in accordance with its beginning. The preceptors of Achilles were Phœnix and Chiron, the most righteous of the Centaurs. Phœnix was sent to Achilles, while yet a child, to teach him to be a speaker of words and a doer of deeds. Hence arose a relation of affectionate regard between the master and his pupil. For this reason he is chosen, with Ajax and Odysseus, to visit Achilles in his tent, and move his resolution not to assist the Greeks. He entreats Achilles to relent:...
Sivu 29 - Frazer said : ... we do no indignity to the myth of Demeter and Persephone — one of the few myths in which the sunshine and clarity of the Greek genius are crossed by the shadow and mystery of death — when we trace its origin to some of the most familiar, yet eternally affecting aspects of nature, to the melancholy gloom and decay of autumn and to the freshness, the brightness, and the verdure of...
Sivu 25 - Language and mind, poetry and biology meet and bear on one another in the figure of Orpheus
Sivu 26 - See ER Dodds, The Greeks and the Irrational (Berkeley and Los Angeles, 1963), 77-79; and George Thomson, Aeschylus and Athens, (London, 1966), 103, 351-58.
Sivu 165 - Wherever the strength of a man's intellect, or moral sense, or affection brings him into opposition with the rules which society has sanctioned, there is renewed the conflict between Antigone and Creon; such a man must not only dare to be right, he must also dare to be wrong — to shake faith, to wound friendship, perhaps, to hem in his own powers.
