Quotations

  • 1809 Sydney Owenson, Woman, or, Ida of Athens, p.127:
    "Ida!!!"
    "It is not a common, but an ancient name in Greece", said the diako,"and was borne by the wife of Lycastus and the mother of the Cretan Minos."
    Osmyn blushed to have been over-heard, and suffered his heart alone to repeat again the sweet and simple name of "Ida".
  • 1938 Graham Greene, Brighton Rock, Compact Books 1993, ISBN 0749317256, page 16:
    "That's what they called me," she said. "My real name's Ida." The old and vulgarised Grecian name recovered a little dignity.
  • 2002 Joyce Carol Oates, I'l Take You There, Fourth Estate 2003, ISBN 0007146442, page 18:
    "Ida" - the name was magical to me. In whispers, in the dark. Beneath bedcovers. Forehead pressed to a windowpane coated with frost. "Ida". What a strange, beautiful name: I could not say it often enough: it was easy to confuse "Ida" with "I" - - -
