Famous quotes containing the word michael:

    While Michael Angelo’s Sistine roof,
    His “Morning” and his “Night” disclose
    How sinew that has been pulled tight,
    Or it may be loosened in repose,
    Can rule by supernatural right
    Yet be but sinew.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
