The Art of Quotation: Edith Hamilton

This awesome woman, and the D’Aulaires, are what really inculcated my love of mythology. (Though, I did have to relearn a lot of things that I learned in the D’Aulaires book… I remember being shocked when I found out that Greek Civilization expanded up into the Balkans, the Black Sea, and a good part of Asia Minor, and we won’t even talk about the mental rewiring I went through when I learned about Magna Grecia. But that’s another story, perhaps for my own books.)

“Great art is the expression of a solution of the conflict between the demands of the world without and that within.” – Edith Hamilton, author
