Blue Eyed Man

Famous quotes containing the words blue, eyed and/or man:

    “... Can poet’s thought
    That springs from body and in body falls
    Like this pure jet, now lost amid blue sky,
    Now bathing lily leaf and fish’s scale,
    Be mimicry?”
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    And the child not caring to whom he climbs his prayer
    Shall drown in a grief as deep as his made grave,
    And mark the dark eyed wave, through the eyes of sleep,
    Dragging him up the stairs to one who lies dead.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    I see that every man that went in had his pockets bulging, or something muffled up under his coat—and I see it warn’t no perfumery either, not by a long sight. I smelt sickly eggs by the barrel, and rotten cabbages, and such things; and if I know the signs of a dead cat being around, and I bet I do, there was sixty-four of them went in. I shoved in there for a minute, but it was too various for me, I couldn’t stand it.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
