Famous quotes containing the word breath:

    We need not fear excessive influence. A more generous trust is permitted. Serve the great. Stick at no humiliation. Grudge no office thou canst render. Be the limb of their body, the breath of their mouth. Compromise thy egotism.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    O hiding hair and dewy eyes,
    I am no more with life and death,
    My heart upon his warm heart lies,
    My breath is mixed into his breath.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
