Fountain Land

Famous quotes containing the words fountain and/or land:

    So the soul, that drop, that ray
    Of the clear fountain of eternal day,
    Could it within the human flower be seen,
    Remembering still its former height,
    Shuns the sweet leaves and blossoms green;
    And, recollecting its own light,
    Does, in its pure and circling thoughts, express
    The greater heaven in an heaven less.
    Andrew Marvell (1621–1678)

    My father upon the Abbey stage, before him a raging crowd.
    “This Land of Saints,” and then as the applause died out,
    “Of plaster Saints;” his beautiful mischievous head thrown back.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
