Famous quotes containing the word waters:

    And more I may not write of, for they that cleave
    The waters of sleep can make a chattering tongue
    Heavy like stone, their wisdom being half silence.
    How shall I name you, immortal, mild, proud shadows?
    I only know that all we know comes from you,
    And that you come from Eden on flying feet.

    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Black women are going to have to take more leadership. I think we are prepared because we bring a tenaciousness with us. We do not fear losing friends, allies, or jobs.
    —Maxine Waters (b. 1938)

    Resignedly beneath the sky
    The melancholy waters lie.
    So blend the turrets and shadows there
    That all seem pendulous in air,
    While from a proud tower in the town
    Death looks gigantically down.
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)
