Famous quotes containing the word battles:

    Probably the battle of Waterloo was won on the playing-fields of Eton, but the opening battles of all subsequent wars have been lost there.
    George Orwell (1903–1950)

    Fasten your hair with a golden pin,
    And bind up every wandering tress;
    I bade my heart build these poor rhymes:
    It worked at them, day out, day in,
    Building a sorrowful loveliness
    Out of the battles of old times.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    So, when my days of impotence approach,
    And I’m by pox and wine’s unlucky chance
    Forced from the pleasing billows of debauch
    On the dull shore of lazy temperance,
    My pains at least some respite shall afford
    While I behold the battles you maintain
    When fleets of glasses sail about the board,
    From whose broadsides volleys of wit shall rain.
    John Wilmot, 2d Earl Of Rochester (1647–1680)
