Famous quotes containing the word ben:

    When long ago I saw her ride
    Under Ben Bulben to the meet,
    The beauty of her country-side
    With all youth’s lonely wildness stirred,
    She seemed to have grown clean and sweet
    Like any rock-bred, sea-borne bird....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Mrs. Robinson, you’re trying to seduce me. Aren’t you?
