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

    Being wakeful for her sake,
    Remembering what she had,
    What eagle look still shows,
    While up from my heart’s root
    So great a sweetness flows
    I shake from head to foot.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Great Powers of falling wave and wind and windy fire,
    With your harmonious choir
    Encircle her I love and sing her into peace,
    That my old care may cease....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Two heavy trestles, and a board
    Where Sato’s gift, a changeless sword,
    By pen and paper lies,
    That it may moralise
    My days out of their aimlessness.
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Because of something told under the famished horn
    Of the hunter’s moon, that hung between the night and the day,
    To dream of women whose beauty was folded in dismay,
    Even in an old story, is a burden not to be borne.
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    It is seldom very hard to do one’s duty when one knows what it is, but it is often exceedingly difficult to find this out.
    —Samuel Butler (1835–1902)
