Famous quotes containing the words feathers and/or eagle:

    Were she to lose her love, because she had lost
    Her confidence in mine, or even lose
    Its first simplicity, love, voice and all,
    All my fine feathers would be plucked away
    And I left shivering.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Does the Eagle know what is in the pit
    Or wilt thou go ask the Mole?
    Can wisdom be put in a silver rod,
    Or love in a golden bowl?
    William Blake (1757–1827)
