The East bow'd low before the blast,
  In patient, deep disdain.
    She let the legions thunder past,
      And plunged in thought again.
      - Matthew Arnold, Obermann Once More
         (st. 28)

And the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows;
  And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canannites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites.
      - Bible, Exodus (ch. III, v. 8)

There are Batavian graces in all he says.
      - Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield,
        retort to Beresford Hope who had referred to him as an "Asian Mystery"

To get to know a country, you must have direct contact with the earth. It's futile to gaze at the world through a car window.
      - Albert Einstein

Oh, dense intelligence. I suspect that it was Batavian (i.e. from the Netherlands-Batavia.)
  [Lat., O crassum ingenium. Suspicor fuisse Batavum.]
      - Desiderius Gerhard Erasmus, Naufragium

All the territorial possessions of all the political establishments in the earth--including America, of course-- consist of pilferings from other people's wash. No tribe, howsoever insignificant, and no nation, howsoever mighty occupies a foot of land that was not stolen.
      - Mark Twain (pseudonym of Samuel Langhorne Clemens),
        Following the Equator
