Famous quotes containing the word round:
“Violence upon the roads: violence of horses;
Some few have handsome riders, are garlanded
On delicate sensitive ear or tossing mane,
But wearied running round and round in their courses
All break and vanish, and evil gathers head:
Herodias daughters have returned again.”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
