Citáty George Chapman

Citát „Mladí lidé si myslí, že staří jsou blázni, ale staří lidé vědí, že mladí jsou blázni.“

„Achilles' baneful wrath resound, O Goddess, that imposed
Infinite sorrows on the Greeks, and many brave souls loosed
From breasts heroic“

—  George Chapman

Book I, line 1, p. 1
The Iliads of Homer, Prince of Poets (1611)
Kontext: Achilles' baneful wrath resound, O Goddess, that imposed
Infinite sorrows on the Greeks, and many brave souls loosed
From breasts heroic, sent them far to that invisible cave
That no light comforts, and their limbs to dogs and vultures gave;
To all which Jove's will gave effect; from whom first strife begun
Betwixt Atrides, king of men, and Thetis' godlike son.

„The sea had soaked his heart through“

—  George Chapman

Homer's Odysses (1614), Book V, line 608; shipwrecked Odysseus washes up on Scheria.
Kontext: Then forth he came, his both knees falt'ring, both
His strong hands hanging down, and all with froth
His cheeks and nostrils flowing, voice and breath
Spent to all use, and down he sunk to death.
The sea had soaked his heart through; all his veins
His toils had rack'd t'a labouring woman's pains.
Dead weary was he.

„Danger (the spur of all great minds)“

—  George Chapman, The Revenge of Bussy D'Ambois

Kontext: Danger (the spur of all great minds) is ever
The curb to your tame spirits.

„As far as white Aurora's dews are sprinkled through the air.“

—  George Chapman

One passion doth expel another still.“

„And for the authentical truth of either person or actions, who (worth the respecting) will expect it in a poem, whose subject is not truth, but things like truth?“

—  George Chapman, The Revenge of Bussy D'Ambois

Poor envious souls they are that cavil at truth's want in these natural fictions; material instruction, elegant and sententious excitation to virtue, and deflection from her contrary, being the soul, limbs, and limits of an authentical tragedy.
The Revenge of Bussy D'Ambois (1613)

„As night the life-inclining stars best shows,
So lives obscure the starriest souls disclose.“

—  George Chapman
