A Quote by William Butler Yeats on anger, good, hatred, mind, quiet, understanding, and women

An intellectual hatred is the worst, So let her think opinions are accursed. Have I not seen the loveliest woman born Out of the mouth of Plenty's horn, Because of her opinionated mind Barter that horn and every good By quiet natures understood For an old bellows full of angry wind?

William Butler Yeats (1865 - 1939)
