James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
Simonides
 
  [Greek]—There is no better test of a man’s work than time, which also reveals the thought which lay hidden in his breast.  1
  Painting is silent poetry, and poetry speaking painting.  2
  ’Tis said that virtue dwells sublime / On rugged cliffs, full hard to climb; / … But mortal ne’er her form may see, / Unless his restless energy / Breaks forth in sweat that gains the goal, / The perfect manhood of the soul.  3
