Greek Love Quotes in English


In the English language, I can love my car, or my house, or my daughter, or traveling, but in Greek and how I grew up, love is described with different words. Yanni

In 100 years we have gone from teaching Latin and Greek in High School to teaching remedial English in college. Joseph Sobran

Sanskrit has ninety-six words for love; ancient Persian has eighty; Greek three; and English simply one. Robert Johnson

The modern haematologist, instead of describing in English what he can see, prefers to describe in Greek what he ca'. Richard Asher

Silly of me not to have realized it. One often finds Greek temples lurking in the woods of English estates. Sneaky things, temples. Victoria Alexander

England and Greece are friends. English blood was shed on Greek soil in the war against fascism, and Greeks gave their lives to protect English pilots. Melina Mercouri

To write or even speak English is not a science but an art. There are no reliable words. Whoever writes English is involved in a struggle that never lets up even for a sentence. He is struggling against vagueness, against obscurity, against the lure of the decorative adjective, against the encroachment of Latin and Greek, and, above all, against the worn-out phrases and dead metaphors with which the language is cluttered up. George Orwell

The modern haematologist, instead of describing in English what he can see, prefers to describe in Greek what he can't. Richard Asher

English has been this vacuum cleaner of a language, because of its history meeting up with the Romans and then the Danes, the Vikings and then the French and then the Renaissance with all the Latin and Greek and Hebrew in the background. David Crystal

I said it in Hebrew-I said it in Dutch- I said it in German and Greek; But I wholly forgot (and it vexes me much) That English is what you speak! Lewis Carroll

In Greek, we do not use just one word for love. We have many words that are specific to each type of love. Yanni

Faction is the greatest evil and the most common danger. "Faction" is the conventional English translation of the Greek stasis, one of the most remarkable words to be found in any language. Moses Finley

In addition to English, at least one ancient language, probably Greek or Hebrew, and two modern languages would be required. W H Auden

I work in Hebrew. Hebrew is deeply inspired by other languages. Not now, for the last three thousand years, Hebrew has been penetrated and fertilized by ancient Semitic languages - by Aramaic, by Greek, by Latin, by Arabic, by Yiddish, by Latino, by German, by Russian, by English, I could go on and on. It's very much like English. The English language took in many many fertilizations, many many genes, from other languages, from foreign languages - Latin, French, Nordic languages, German, Scandinavian languages. Every language has influences and is an influence. Amos Oz

I suppose there is no place in the world where snobbery is quite so ever-present or where it is cultivated in such refined and subtle forms as in an English public school. Here at least one cannot say that English 'education' fails to do its job. You forget your Latin and Greek within a few months of leaving school - I studied Greek for eight or ten years, and now, at thirty-three, I cannot even repeat the Greek alphabet - but your snobbishness, unless you persistently root it out like the bindweed it is, sticks by you till your grave. George Orwell

Had there been no Renaissance and no Italian influence to bring in the stories of other lands English history would, it may be, have become as important to the English imagination as the Greek Myths to the Greek imagination; and many plays by many poets would have woven it into a single story whose contours, vast as those of Greek myth, would have made living men and women seem like swallows building their nests under the architrave of some Temple of the Giants. William Butler Yeats

By being so long in the lowest form [at Harrow] I gained an immense advantage over the cleverer boys. . . . I got into my bones the essential structure of the ordinary British sentence - which is a noble thing. Naturally I am biased in favor of boys learning English; I would make them all learn English: and then I would let the clever ones learn Latin as an honor, and Greek as a treat. Winston Churchill

I love Greek mythology, I love gladiators, I love war stuff. Tyson Chandler

The word hospitality in the New Testament comes from two Greek words. The first word means love and the second word means strangers. Its a word that means love of strangers. Nancy Leigh DeMoss

I was also in love with the English language. Dick Schaap
