Famous quotes containing the words dark and/or continent:
“Lovers of horses and of women, shall
From marble of a broken sepulchre
Or dark betwixt the polecat and the owl,
Or any rich, dark nothing disinter
The workman, noble and saint, and all things run
On that fashionable gyre again.”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
