- Quotations From Georg Ebers - 4/14 -


Inn, was to be found about every eighteen miles Introduced a regular system of taxation-Darius Know how to honor beauty; and prove it by taking many wives Lovers delighted in nature then as now Lovers are the most unteachable of pupils Misfortune too great for tears Mosquito-tower with which nearly every house was provided Multitude who, like the gnats, fly towards every thing brilliant Natural impulse which moves all old women to favor lovers Never so clever as when we have to find excuses for our own sins No man was allowed to ask anything of the gods for himself Nothing is more dangerous to love, than a comfortable assurance Nothing is perfectly certain in this world Numbers are the only certain things Observe a due proportion in all things Olympics--The first was fixed 776 B.C. One must enjoy the time while it is here Only two remedies for heart-sickness:--hope and patience Ordered his feet to be washed and his head anointed Papyrus Ebers Pilgrimage to the grave, and death as the only true life Pious axioms to be repeated by the physician, while compounding Remember, a lie and your death are one and the same Resistance always brings out a man's best powers Robes cut as to leave the right breast uncovered Romantic love, as we know it, a result of Christianity Rules of life given by one man to another are useless Scarcely be able to use so large a sum--Then abuse it Sent for a second interpreter Sing their libels on women (Greek Philosophers) So long as we are able to hope and wish Take heed lest pride degenerate into vainglory The past belongs to the dead; only fools count upon the future The priests are my opponents, my masters The gods cast envious glances at the happiness of mortals The beautiful past is all he has to live upon They praise their butchers more than their benefactors Those are not my real friends who tell me I am beautiful Time is clever in the healing art True host puts an end to the banquet Unwise to try to make a man happy by force War is a perversion of nature We live for life, not for death We've talked a good deal of love with our eyes already 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 Whether the historical romance is ever justifiable Wise men hold fast by the ever young present Ye play with eternity as if it were but a passing moment Young Greek girls pass their sad childhood in close rooms Zeus pays no heed to lovers' oaths

THE SISTERS, by Georg Ebers, v1 [GE#23][ge23v10.txt]5461

A mere nothing in one man's life, to another may be great A subdued tone generally provokes an equally subdued answer Air of a professional guide Before you serve me up so bitter a meal (the truth) Blind tenderness which knows no reason By nature she is not and by circumstances is compelled to be Deceit is deceit Desire to seek and find a power outside us Inquisitive eyes are intrusive company Many a one would rather be feared than remain unheeded Not yet fairly come to the end of yesterday The altar where truth is mocked at Virtues are punished in this world Who can be freer than he who needs nothing Who only puts on his armor when he is threatened

THE SISTERS, by Georg Ebers, v2 [GE#24][ge24v10.txt]5462

And what is great--and what is small Behold, the puny Child of Man Evolution and annihilation Flattery is a key to the heart Hold pleasure to be the highest good Man is the measure of all things Museum of Alexandria and the Library One hand washes the other Prefer deeds to words What are we all but puny children?

THE SISTERS, by Georg Ebers, v3 [GE#25][ge25v10.txt]5463

If you want to catch mice you must waste bacon Man works with all his might for no one but himself Nothing permanent but change Nothing so certain as that nothing is certain Priests that they should instruct the people to be obedient

THE SISTERS, by Georg Ebers, v4 [GE#26][ge26v10.txt]5464

Created the world out of nothing for no other purpose Dreamless sleep after a day brimful of enjoyment Man must subjugate matter and not become subject to it No one believes anything that can diminish his self-esteem Praise out of all proportion to our merit Save them the trouble of thinking for themselves She no longer thought these things--she was possessed by them Taken it upon herself to be always strong, and self-reliant The most terrible of all the gods, are women The sun seems to move too slowly to those who long and wait We seek for truth; the Jews believe they possess it entirely Who always think at second-hand Why so vehement, sister? So much zeal is quite unnecessary

THE SISTERS, by Georg Ebers, v5 [GE#27][ge27v10.txt]5465

A debtor, says the proverb, is half a prisoner Old women grow like men, and old men grow like women They get ahead of us, and yet--I would not change with them

THE SISTERS, by Ebers, Complete [GE#28][ge28v10.txt]5466

A subdued tone generally provokes an equally subdued answer A mere nothing in one man's life, to another may be great A debtor, says the proverb, is half a prisoner Air of a professional guide And what is great--and what is small Before you serve me up so bitter a meal (the truth) Behold, the puny Child of Man Blind tenderness which knows no reason By nature she is not and by circumstances is compelled to be Deceit is deceit Desire to seek and find a power outside us Evolution and annihilation Flattery is a key to the heart Hold pleasure to be the highest good If you want to catch mice you must waste bacon Inquisitive eyes are intrusive company Man is the measure of all things Man works with all his might for no one but himself Many a one would rather be feared than remain unheeded Museum of Alexandria and the Library Not yet fairly come to the end of yesterday Nothing permanent but change Nothing so certain as that nothing is certain Old women grow like men, and old men grow like women One hand washes the other Prefer deeds to words Priests that they should instruct the people to be obedient The altar where truth is mocked at They get ahead of us, and yet--I would not change with them Virtues are punished in this world What are we all but puny children? Who can be freer than he who needs nothing Who only puts on his armor when he is threatened

JOSHUA, by Georg Ebers, v1 [GE#29][ge29v10.txt]5467

Hate, though never sated, can yet be gratified Omnipotent God, who had preferred his race above all others When hate and revenge speak, gratitude shrinks timidly Who can prop another's house when his own is falling

JOSHUA, by Georg Ebers, v2 [GE#30][ge30v10.txt]5468

Brief "eternity" of national covenants Choose between too great or too small a recompense Regard the utterances and mandates of age as wisdom There is no 'never,' no surely Voice of the senses, which drew them together, will soon be mute

JOSHUA, by Georg Ebers, v3 [GE#31][ge31v10.txt]5469

A school where people learned modesty But what do you men care for the suffering you inflict on others Childhood already lies behind me, and youth will soon follow Good advice is more frequently unheeded than followed Precepts and lessons which only a mother can give Should I be a man, if I forgot vengeance? To the mines meant to be doomed to a slow, torturing death
