A Quote by William Butler Yeats on imitation, liberty, rest, and world

Swift has sailed into his rest; Savage indignation there Cannot lacerate his breast Imitate him if you dare, World-besotted traveler; he Served human liberty.

A Quote by William Blake on dance, daughters, rest, and songs

O Autumn, laden with fruit, and stained With the blood of the grape, pass not, but sit Beneath my shady roof; there thou may'st rest, And tune thy jolly voice to my fresh pipe; And all the daughters of the year shall dance! Sing now the lusty song of fruit and flowers.

William Blake (1757 - 1827)

A Quote by Wilbur Cross on choice, good, life, rest, success, and thinking

"Choices with Clout" "If what we are thinking about doing is likely to produce good results, we can be reasonably sure we will be choosing the right thing to do. You can make a living from 9 to 5, but you make a success during the rest. . . ."

A Quote by Wilbur F. Crafts on babies, god, growth, men, mistakes, parenthood, rest, silence, truth, and work

"Who made you?" a boy of ten was asked. He stood in thoughtful silence for a moment and then, measuring the length of a baby with his hands, replied: "God made me this long, and I "growed the rest." The mistake that was his in leaving out God in his growth suggests the truth that we are partly self-made men. God and parenthood and birthplace partly make us, but we must make the rest by will and work.

Earth, receive an honored guest; William Yeats is laid to rest. Let the Irish vessel lie Emptied of its poetry.

A Quote by U.S. Supreme Court on action, belief, debate, decisions, goals, government, heart, idealism, ideas, information, laws, lies, life, persuasion, politics, principles, rest, risk, and speech

At the heart of the First Amendment lies the principle that each person should decide for him or herself the ideas and beliefs deserving of expression, consideration, and adherence. Our political system and cultural life rest upon this ideal. Government action that stifles speech on account of its message, or that requires the utterance of a particular message favored by the Government, contravenes this essential right. Laws of this sort pose the inherent risk that the Government seeks not to advance a legitimate regulatory goal, but to suppress unpopular ideas or information or manipulate the public debate through coercion rather than persuasion.
