When you are old and gray and full of sleep, and nodding by the fire, take down this book and slowly read, and dream of the soft look your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep.
William Butler Yeats
You that would judge me, do not judge alone this book or that, come to this hallowed place where my friends' portraits hang and look thereon; Ireland's history in their lineaments trace; think where man's glory most begins and ends and say my glory was I had such friends.
Take, if you must, this little bag of dreams, Unloose the cord, and they will wrap you round.
There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven't yet met.
Wine comes in at the mouth And love comes in at the eye; That's all we shall know for truth Before we grow old and die.
Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure nor this thing nor that but simply growth, We are happy when we are growing.
The light of lights looks always on the motive, not the deed, the shadow of shadows on the deed alone.
Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.
Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking.
Come Fairies, take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind and dance upon the mountains like a flame!
