Famous quotes containing the words william butler yeats, william butler, butler yeats, yeats, william and/or butler:

    The mountain throws a shadow,
    Thin is the moon’s horn;
    What did we remember
    Under the ragged thorn?
    Dread has followed longing,
    And our hearts are torn.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    He bore her away in his arms,
    The handsomest young man there,
    And his neck and his breast and his arms
    Were drowned in her long dim hair.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Him who trembles before the flame and the flood,
    And the winds that blow through the starry ways,
    Let the starry winds and the flame and the flood
    Cover over and hide, for he has no part
    With the lonely, majestical multitude.
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    A Druid land, a Druid tune!
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    In the long course of history, having people who understand your thought is much greater security than another submarine.
    —J. William Fulbright (b. 1905)

    The chief imagination of Christendom,
    Dante Alighieri, so utterly found himself
    That he has made that hollow face of his
    More plain to the mind’s eye than any face
    But that of Christ.
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
