A Quote by William Butler Yeats on art, death, love, lovers, silence, songs, speech, and wisdom
Speech after long silence; it is right, All other lovers being estranged or dead . . . That we descant and yet again descant Upon the supreme theme of Art and Song: Bodily decrepitude is wisdom; young We loved each other and were ignorant.
