A Quote by William Butler Yeats on age, dogs, expectation, heart, imagination, impossibility, and passion

What shall I do with this absurdity- O heart, O troubled heart-this caricature, Decrepit age that has been tied to me As to a dog's tail? Never had I more Excited, passionate, fantastical Imagination, nor an ear and eye That more expected the impossible.

William Butler Yeats (1865 - 1939)
