Famous quotes containing the words day and/or mountain:

    There is something else which has the power to awaken us to the truth. It is the works of writers of genius.... They give us, in the guise of fiction, something equivalent to the actual density of the real, that density which life offers us every day but which we are unable to grasp because we are amusing ourselves with lies.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)

    And no one knows what’s yet to come.
    For Patrick Pearse had said
    That in every generation
    Must Ireland’s blood be shed.
    From mountain to mountain ride the fierce horsemen.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
