What is head for the hills?

Famous quotes containing the words hills and/or head:

    My travel’s history,
    Wherein of antres vast and deserts idle,
    Rough quarries, rocks, and hills whose heads touch heaven,
    It was my hint to speak—such was my process—
    And of the cannibals that each other eat,
    The anthropophagi, and men whose heads
    Do grow beneath their shoulders.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    My father upon the Abbey stage, before him a raging crowd.
    “This Land of Saints,” and then as the applause died out,
    “Of plaster Saints;” his beautiful mischievous head thrown back.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
