C.N. Douglas, comp. Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical. 1917.


  • Clime of the unforgotten brave!
  • Whose land, from plain to mountain-cave,
  • Was Freedom’s home, or Glory’s grave;
  • Shrine of the mighty! can it be,
  • That this is all remains of thee?
  • Byron.

  • The isles of Greece, the isles of Greece!
  • Where burning Sappho loved and sung,
  • Where grew the arts of war and peace—
  • Where Delos rose, and Phœbus sprung!
  • Eternal summer gilds them yet,
  • But all, except their sun, is set.
  • Byron.
