Famous quotes containing the word margaret:

    There’s Margaret and Marjorie and Dorothy and Nan,
    A Daphne and a Mary who live in privacy;
    One’s had her fill of lovers, another’s had but one,
    Another boasts, “I pick and choose and have but two or three.”
    If head and limb have beauty and the instep’s high and light
    They can spread out what sail they please for all I have to say....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
