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

    Rose of all Roses, Rose of all the World!
    You, too, have come where the dim tides are hurled
    Upon the wharves of sorrow, and heard ring
    The bell that calls us on; the sweet far thing.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    “Nor should she be too rich, because the rich
    Are driven by wealth as beggars by the itch,”
    Beggar to beggar cried, being frenzy-struck,
    “And cannot have a humorous happy speech.”
    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)

    We dreamed that a great painter had been born
    To cold Clare rock and Galway rock and thorn,
    To that stern colour and that delicate line
    That are our secret discipline
    Wherein the gazing heart doubles her might....
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    O would that we had met
    When I had my burning youth!
    But I grow old among dreams,
    A weather-worn, marble triton
    Among the streams.
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
