Famous quotes containing the word stone:

    This whole day have I followed in the rocks,
    And you have changed and flowed from shape to shape,
    First as a raven on whose ancient wings
    Scarcely a feather lingered, then you seemed
    A weasel moving on from stone to stone....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
