Devil Bats

Famous quotes containing the words devil and/or bats:

    What a devil art thou, Poverty! How many desires—how many aspirations after goodness and truth—how many noble thoughts, loving wishes toward our fellows, beautiful imaginings thou hast crushed under thy heel, without remorse or pause!
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    While I wrought out these fitful Danaan rhymes,
    My heart would brim with dreams about the times
    When we bent down above the fading coals
    And talked of the dark folk who live in souls
    Of passionate men, like bats in the dead trees....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
