Famous quotes containing the word court:

    “But such as you and I do not seem old
    Like men who live by habit. Every day
    I ride with falcon to the river’s edge
    Or carry the ringed mail upon my back,
    Or court a woman; neither enemy,
    Game-bird, nor woman does the same thing twice....”
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
