Famous quotes containing the words william butler yeats, william butler, butler yeats, yeats and/or butler:

    “And get a comfortable wife and house
    To rid me of the devil in my shoes,”
    Beggar to beggar cried, being frenzy-struck,
    “And the worse devil that is between my thighs.”
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    And found on the dove-grey edge of the sea
    A pearl-pale, high-born lady, who rode
    On a horse with bridle of findrinny;
    And like a sunset were her lips,
    A stormy sunset on doomed ships....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    There, through the broken branches, go
    The ravens of unresting thought;
    Flying, crying, to and fro,
    Cruel claw and hungry throat,
    Or else they stand and sniff the wind....
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    O love is the crooked thing,
    There is nobody wise enough
    To find out all that is in it,
    For he would be thinking of love
    Till the stars had run away
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Sweetheart, do not love too long:
    I loved long and long,
    And grew to be out of fashion
    Like an old song.
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
