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

    Your hooves have stamped at the black margin of the wood,
    Even where horrible green parrots call and swing.
    My works are all stamped down into the sultry mud.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Though now in her old age, in her young age
    She had been beautiful in that old way
    That’s all but gone; for the proud heart is gone,
    And the fool heart of the counting-house fears all
    But soft beauty and indolent desire.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    The sad, the lonely, the insatiable,
    To these Old Night shall all her mystery tell;
    God’s bell has claimed them by the little cry
    Of their sad hearts, that may not live nor die.
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    For everything that’s lovely is
    But a brief, dreamy, kind delight.
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    An empty house is like a stray dog or a body from which life has departed.
    —Samuel Butler (1835–1902)
