Quotations by Author

William Butler Yeats

Think like a wise man but communicate in the language of the people. (or in the language of a child)

Come away, O human child: To the waters and the wild with a fairy, hand in hand, For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.

Education is not filling a bucket, but lighting a fire.

Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure nor this thing nor that but simply growth, We are happy when we are growing.

If suffering brings wisdom, I would wish to be less wise.

Land of Heart's Desire,/ Where beauty has no ebb, decay no flood,/ But joy is wisdom, time an endless song.
