The Macedonian kings, who maintained that their Greek ancestry traced back to Zeus, had long given homes and patronage to Greece's most distinguished artists.
Beauty in this Iron Age must turn From fluid living rainbow shapes to torn And sootened fragments, ashes in an urn On whose gray surface runes are Traced by a Norn Who hopes to wake the Future to arise In Phoenix -fashion, and to shine with rays To blast the sight of modern men whose dyes Of selfishness and lust have stained our days...philip josé farmer
But the novels of women were not affected only by the necessarily narrow range of the writer's experience. They showed, at least in the nineteenth century, another characteristic which may be Traced to the writer's sex. In Middlemarch and in Jane Eyre we are conscious not merely of the writer's character, as we are conscious of the character of Charles Dickens, but we are conscious of a woman's presence of someone resenting the treatment of her sex and pleading for its rights.virginia woolf
The accent of conviction is made up of a mixture of faith, power, and love combined, forming a characteristic which is at once simple, pious, and grand, redolent of inspiration and sanctity. Here are no fabulous joys and woes; no hollow, fantastic sentimentalities; no wire-drawn refinings, either in thought or feeling; the passion that is Traced before us has glowed in a living heart; the opinion he utters has risen in his own understanding, and'been a light to his own steps.
Do not expect again a phoenix hour, The triple-towered sky, the dove complaining, Sudden the rain of gold and heart's first ease Traced under trees by the eldritch light of sundown.
Why it was that upon this beautiful feminine tissue, sensitive as gossamer, and practically blank as snow as yet, there should have been Traced such a coarse pattern as it was doomed to receive; why so often the coarse appropriates the finer thus, the wrong man the woman, the wrong woman the man, many thousand years of analytical philosophy have failed to explain to our sense of order.thomas hardy
The mere repetition of the Cantilena of lawyers cannot make it law, unless it can be Traced to some competent authority; and if it be irreconcilable, to some clear legal principle.
Pouter, tumbler and fantail are from the same source;The racer and hack may be Traced to one horse;So men were developed from monkeys of course,Which nobody can deny.charles neaves
Most boys or youths who have had much knowledge drilled into them, have their mental capacities not strengthened, but overlaid by it. They are crammed with mere facts, and with the opinions and phrases of other people, and these are accepted as a substitute for the power to form opinions of their own. And thus, the sons of eminent fathers, who have spared no pains in their education, so often grow up mere parroters of what they have learnt, incapable of using their minds except in the furrows Traced for them.john stuart mill
One learns that the world, though made, is yet being made. That this is still the morning of creation. That mountains, long conceived, are now being born, brought to light by the glaciers, channels Traced for coming rivers, basins hollowed for lakes.john muir
It has been said that that which has made England a great and an energetic nation, is the principle heretofore acted upon of maintaining a very low Peace establishment, while the Peace establishments of the continent have been uniformly high. I do not agree in that view of the subject. For my own part, I believe much of our financial embarrassment to have been caused by our former low Peace establishments, and to this circumstance the failure of many of our military operations may be Traced.temple, henry, 3rd viscount palmerston
The root cause of terrorism lies not in grievances but in a disposition toward unbridled violence. This can be Traced to a world view which asserts that certain ideological and religious goals justify, indeed demand, the shedding of all moral inhibitions.” Terrorism How the West Can Win.
"When an alluring woman comes in at the door," warningly Traced the austere Kien-fi on the margin of his well-known essay, "discretion may be found up the chimney". It is incredible that beneath this ever-timely reminder an obscure disciple should have added the words: "The wiser the sage, the more profound the folly."
Science as we now understand the word is of later birth. If its germinal origin may be Traced to the early period when Observation, Induction, and Deduction were first employed, its birth must be referred to that comparatively recent period when the mind, rejecting the primitive tendency to seek in supernatural agencies for an explanation of all external phenomena, endeavoured, by a systematic investigation of the phenomena themselves to discover their invariable order and connection.george henry lewes
Carnatic music as we know today can at best be Traced to the early or middle of the eighteenth century. One of the most important reasons being the unbroken lines of guru-sisya (teacher–disciple) that have come down to the present day bringing with them compositions and musical practices of distinct traditions .
Texts may prescribe that the lines of the yantra be Traced with a specific colour, for example, with turmeric or blood, but the space inside is never filled with colours….images are generally not found in yantras.
The President can exercise no power which cannot be fairly and reasonably Traced to some specific grant of power … in the Federal Constitution or in an act of Congress passed in pursuance thereof. There is no undefined residuum of power which he can exercise because it seems to him to be in the public interest.william howard taft
The feather, whence the pen Was shaped that Traced the lives of these good men, Dropped from an Angel's wing.william wordsworth
The philosophic spirit of inquiry may be Traced to brute curiosity, and that to the habit of examining all things in search of food. Artistic genius is an expansion of monkey imitativeness.william winwood reade
