Famous quotes containing the word long:

    I had been in the hurrying waters too long not to appreciate an opportunity to lie on the bank and rest, watch others, and gain strength for the coming years.
    Ellen Henrietta Swallow Richards (1842–1911)

    I long for truth, and yet
    I cannot stay from that
    My better self disowns,
    For a man’s attention
    Brings such satisfaction
    To the craving in my bones.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    She does the work about the house
    As well as most, but like a mouse:
    Happy enough to chat and play
    With birds and rabbits and such as they,
    So long as men-folk keep away.
    Charlotte Mew (1870–1928)
