- Quotations From Georg Ebers - 3/14 -


Did the ancients know anything of love Folly to fret over what cannot be undone Go down into the grave before us (Our children) He who kills a cat is punished (for murder) In those days men wept, as well as women Lovers delighted in nature then as now Multitude who, like the gnats, fly towards every thing brilliant Olympics--The first was fixed 776 B.C. Papyrus Ebers Pious axioms to be repeated by the physician, while compounding Romantic love, as we know it, a result of Christianity True host puts an end to the banquet Whether the historical romance is ever justifiable

AN EGYPTIAN PRINCESS, by Georg Ebers, v2 [GE#13][ge13v10.txt]5451

Avoid excessive joy as well as complaining grief Cast off all care; be mindful only of pleasure Creed which views life as a short pilgrimage to the grave Does happiness consist then in possession Happiness has nothing to do with our outward circumstances In our country it needs more courage to be a coward Observe a due proportion in all things One must enjoy the time while it is here Pilgrimage to the grave, and death as the only true life Robes cut as to leave the right breast uncovered The priests are my opponents, my masters Time is clever in the healing art We live for life, not for death

AN EGYPTIAN PRINCESS, by Georg Ebers, v3 [GE#14][ge14v10.txt]5452

A kind word hath far more power than an angry one Abuse not those who have outwitted thee Cannot understand how trifles can make me so happy Confess I would rather provoke a lioness than a woman Curiosity is a woman's vice I cannot . . . Say rather: I will not In this immense temple man seemed a dwarf in his own eyes Know how to honor beauty; and prove it by taking many wives Mosquito-tower with which nearly every house was provided Natural impulse which moves all old women to favor lovers Sent for a second interpreter Sing their libels on women (Greek Philosophers) Those are not my real friends who tell me I am beautiful Young Greek girls pass their sad childhood in close rooms

AN EGYPTIAN PRINCESS, by Georg Ebers, v4 [GE#15][ge15v10.txt]5453

A first impression is often a final one Assigned sixty years as the limit of a happy life At my age every year must be accepted as an undeserved gift Cambyses had been spoiled from his earliest infancy Devoid of occupation, envy easily becomes hatred Easy to understand what we like to hear Eros mocks all human efforts to resist or confine him Eyes are much more eloquent than all the tongues in the world For the errors of the wise the remedy is reparation, not regret Greeks have not the same reverence for truth He who is to govern well must begin by learning to obey In war the fathers live to mourn for their slain sons Inn, was to be found about every eighteen miles Lovers are the most unteachable of pupils The beautiful past is all he has to live upon The gods cast envious glances at the happiness of mortals Unwise to try to make a man happy by force War is a perversion of nature Ye play with eternity as if it were but a passing moment Zeus pays no heed to lovers' oaths

AN EGYPTIAN PRINCESS, by Georg Ebers, v5 [GE#16][ge16v10.txt]5454

Death is so long and life so short No man was allowed to ask anything of the gods for himself Take heed lest pride degenerate into vainglory

AN EGYPTIAN PRINCESS, by Georg Ebers, v6 [GE#17][ge17v10.txt]5455

Call everything that is beyond your comprehension a miracle Never so clever as when we have to find excuses for our own sins So long as we are able to hope and wish

AN EGYPTIAN PRINCESS, by Georg Ebers, v7 [GE#18][ge18v10.txt]5456

Blessings go as quickly as they come Hast thou a wounded heart? touch it seldom Nothing is perfectly certain in this world Only two remedies for heart-sickness:--hope and patience Remember, a lie and your death are one and the same Scarcely be able to use so large a sum--Then abuse it Whatever a man would do himself, he thinks others are capable of When love has once taken firm hold of a man in riper years

AN EGYPTIAN PRINCESS, by Georg Ebers, v8 [GE#19][ge19v10.txt]5457

Corpse to be torn in pieces by dogs and vultures He is the best host, who allows his guests the most freedom The past belongs to the dead; only fools count upon the future They praise their butchers more than their benefactors We've talked a good deal of love with our eyes already Wise men hold fast by the ever young present

AN EGYPTIAN PRINCESS, by Georg Ebers, v9 [GE#20][ge20v10.txt]5458

Between two stools a man falls to the ground Human beings hate the man who shows kindness to their enemies Misfortune too great for tears Nothing is more dangerous to love, than a comfortable assurance Ordered his feet to be washed and his head anointed Rules of life given by one man to another are useless

AN EGYPTIAN PRINCESS, by Georg Ebers, v10 [GE#21][ge21v10.txt]5459

A noble mind can never swim with the stream Age is inquisitive Apis the progeny of a virgin cow and a moonbeam Be not merciful unto him who is a liar or a rebel Canal to connect the Nile with the Red Sea I was not swift to anger, nor a liar, nor a violent ruler Introduced a regular system of taxation--(Darius) Numbers are the only certain things Resistance always brings out a man's best powers
