Famous quotes containing the word heads:

    I shall speak of ... how melancholy and utopia preclude one another. How they fertilize one another.... Of the revulsion that follows one insight and precedes the next.... Of superabundance and surfeit. Of stasis in progress. And of myself, for whom melancholy and utopia are heads and tails of the same coin.
    Günther Grass (b. 1927)

    We can never put ourselves in the shoes of children; we cannot fathom their thoughts, we lend them ours; and always following our own reasoning, we stuff their heads with extravagance and error.
    Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712–1778)

    Women are hard and proud and stubborn-hearted,
    Their heads being turned with praise and flattery;
    And that is why their lovers are afraid
    To tell them a plain story.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
