Famous quotes containing the words william butler yeats, william butler, butler yeats, yeats and/or butler:

    Or have you heard that sliding silver-shoed
    Pale silver-proud queen-woman of the sky,
    When the sun looked out of his golden hood?
    O that none ever loved but you and I!
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    And all the popular statesmen say
    That purity built up the State
    And after kept it from decay;
    Admonish us to cling to that
    And let all base ambition be,
    For intellect would make us proud....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    She smiled and that transfigured me
    And left me but a lout,
    Maundering here, and maundering there,
    Emptier of thought
    Than the heavenly circuit of its stars
    When the moon sails out.
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    And God would bid His warfare cease,
    Saying all things were well;
    And softly make a rosy peace,
    A peace of Heaven with Hell.
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Hurrah for revolution and cannon come again!
    The beggars have changed places, but the lash goes on.
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
