Quotes about Greece

Greece “is austere. It rejects all daydreams, even historical ones. It is drab, barren, dramatic and strange, like a terribly emaciated face…” – Hugo von Hofmannsthal

“To sail slowly through the streets of Poros is to recapture the joy of passing through the neck of the womb. It is a joy almost too deep to be remembered.” – Henry Miller

“I think the secret is that it belongs to all of us – to us of the West. We’ve learned to think in its terms, to live in its laws. It’s given us almost everything that our world has that is worth its while. Truth, straight thinking, freedom, beauty. It’s our second language, our second line of thought, our second country. We all have our own country – and Greece.” – Mary Stewart, My Brother Michael
