The light of lights looks always on the motive, not the deed, the shadow of shadows on the deed alone.
William Butler Yeats
Think like a wise man but communicate in the language of the people.
The innocent and the beautiful have no enemy but time.
Take, if you must, this little bag of dreams, Unloose the cord, and they will wrap you round.
Come Fairies, take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind and dance upon the mountains like a flame!
Talent perceives differences; genius, unity.
How far away the stars seem, and how far is our first kiss, and ah, how old my heart.
Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking.
Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.
There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven't yet met.
