Letter to his son Eduard (5 February 1930), as quoted in Walter Isaacson, Einstein: His Life and Universe (2007, p. 367)

In fine, we alighted off from his back into the upper galleries of the house and saved the labour going upstairs.Peter Mundy

Go by reverently, and read with sober careHow a great people, riding with defiant shoutsThe centaur of Revolution,Spurred and whipped to frenzy,Shook with terror, seeing the mist of the seaOver the precipice they were nearing,And fell from his back in precipitate aweTo celebrate the Feast of the Supreme Being.Edgar Lee Masters

In certain passages of the OT the concept of Babylon emerges into an archetypal figure for the proud, God-defying forces of this world.
