A Quote by Helen Adams Keller on art, sculpture, eye, seeing, rhythm, marble, and greek

I sometimes wonder if the hand is not more sensitive to the beauties of sculpture than the eye. I should think the wonderful rhythmical flow of lines and curves could be more subtly felt than seen. Be this as it may, I know that I can feel the heart- throbs of the ancient Greeks in their marble gods and goddesses

A Quote by Paul Neilan on monsters and greek

Dudes who fuck guinea pigs are the modern equivalent of that three-headed dog and Medusa and all those other Greek monsters.  That's how far we've come in a few thousand years.

A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, typology, greek, and character

(The terms douloi, banausoi and aristoi) are in a way more precise, but what is more vital and valuable, they are more comprehensive:  they project a concept of psychic order that embraces entire fields that we have no other way of seeing all together as the working of a single principle.  If we think of the human domain as the collaboration and the conflict of these three diverse character-types, we can understand the weave and the stress and polemics of their very different basal teleologies or ultimate governing purposes of life.
