Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Greece
 
The isles of Greece, the isles of Greece!
  Where burning Sappho loved and sung,
Where grew the arts of war and peace,—
  Where Delos rose, and Phœbus sprung!
Eternal summer gilds them yet,
But all, except their sun, is set.
        Byron.—Don Juan, Canto III., the song following Stanza 86.
  1
From Egypt, arts their progress made to Greece,
Wrapp’d in the fable of the Golden Fleece.
        Denham.—Progress of Learning, Line 21.
