    All perform their tragic play,
    There struts Hamlet, there is Lear,
    That’s Ophelia, that Cordelia;
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    “Nor should she be too rich, because the rich
    Are driven by wealth as beggars by the itch,”
    Beggar to beggar cried, being frenzy-struck,
    “And cannot have a humorous happy speech.”
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    May God be praised for woman
    That gives up all her mind,
    A man may find in no man
    A friendship of her kind
    That covers all he has brought
    As with her flesh and bone....
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    What’s left to sigh for,
    Strange night has come;
    God’s love has hidden him
    Out of all harm,
    Pleasure has made him
    Weak as a worm.
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Many times man lives and dies
    Betweeen his two eternities,
    That of race and that of soul,
    And ancient Ireland knew it all.
    Whether man die in his bed
    Or the rifle knocks him dead,
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
