Famous quotes containing the word play:

    O never give the heart outright,
    For they, for all smooth lips can say,
    Have given their hearts up to the play.
    And who could play it well enough
    If deaf and dumb and blind with love?
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    The guided missiles,
    The black-and-white angels follow each quirk and jink of
    The evasive sheep, play grandmother’s-steps behind them,
    Freeze to the ground, or leap to head off a straggler
    Cecil Day Lewis (1904–1972)

    The critic lives at second hand. He writes about. The poem, the novel, or the play must be given to him; criticism exists by the grace of other men’s genius. By virtue of style, criticism can itself become literature. But usually this occurs only when the writer is acting as critic of his own work or as outrider to his own poetics, when the criticism of Coleridge is work in progress or that of T.S. Eliot propaganda.
    George Steiner (b. 1929)
