A Quote by William Shakespeare on bankers and dance

I know a bank whereon the wild thyme blows Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows Quite canopied over with luscious woodbine With sweet muskroses and with eglantine. There sleeps Titania sometime of the night Lulled in these flowers with dances and delights.

A Quote by William Shakespeare on angels, bankers, gold, harmony, heaven, immortality, music, soul, and stillness

How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank! Here will we sit, and let the sounds of music Creep in our ears; soft stillness and the night Become the touches of sweet harmony. Sit, Jessica: look, how the floor of heaven Is thick inlaid with patines of bright gold; There's not the smallest orb which thou behold'st But in his motion like an angel sings, Still quiring to the young-eyed cherubins. Such harmony is in immortal souls; But whilst this muddy vesture of decay Doth grossly close it in, we cannot hear it.

A Quote by William Butler Yeats on bankers, thought, work, and world

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.

A Quote by William Allingham on bankers and tears

Four ducks on a pond, A grass-bank beyond, A blue sky of spring, White clouds on the wing: What a little thing To remember for years- To remember with tears.

A Quote by Violette Leduc on bankers, music, and solitude

I walk without flinching through the burning cathedral of the summer. My bank of wild grass is majestic and full of music. It is a fire that solitude presses against my lips.

A Quote by unknown on bankers, good, honesty, trouble, virtue, and women

Can a woman be too virtuous? Can a bank cashier be too honest? Can a witness be too truthful ? Surely not. The trouble is that none of us is half as good as we ought to be.

A Quote by unknown on automobiles, bankers, children, clothes, kindness, life, money, and world

One hundred years from now It will not matter What kind of car I drove, What kind of house I lived in, How much money I had in my bank account, Nor what my clothes looked like. But the world may be a little better Because I was important in the life of a child.
