A Quote by William Butler Yeats on day, heart, and water

I will arise and go now, for always night and day I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;  While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,  I hear it in the deep heart's core.

A Quote by William Butler Yeats on day, life, and writers

Never to have lived is best, ancient writers say. Never to have drawn the breath of life, never to have looked into the eye of day; The second best's a gay goodnight and quickly turn away.

Things said or done long years ago Or things I did not do or say But thought that I might say or do, Weigh me down, and not a day But something is recalled, My conscience or my vanity appalled.

A Quote by William Browne of Tavistock on day, garden, god, and heaven

But well-a-day, the gardener careless grew, The maids and fairies both were kept away, And in a drought the caterpillars threw Themselves upon the bud and every spray. God shield the stock! if Heaven send no supplies, The fairest blossom of the garden dies.
