Example Sentence (Quote)

"A line will take us hours maybe; Yet if it does not seem a moment's thought, Our stitching and unstitching has been naught. Better go down upon your marrow-bones And scrub a kitchen pavement, or break stones Like an old pauper, in all kinds of weather; For to articulate sweet sounds together Is to work harder than all these, and yet Be thought an idler by the noisy set Of bankers, schoolmasters, and clergymen The martyrs call the world." - William Butler Yeats

Example Sentence (Quote)

"A pity beyond all telling Is hid in the heart of love: The folk who are buying and selling, The clouds on their journey above, The cold wet winds ever blowing, And the shadowy hazel grove Where mouse-grey waters are flowing, Threaten the head that I love." - William Butler Yeats

Example Sentence (Quote)

"Ah, that Time could touch a form That could show what Homer's age Bred to be a hero's wage.

Ah, but peace that comes at length, Came when Time had touched her form." - William Butler Yeats
