Famous quotes containing the word knife:

    When she, and though some said she played
    I said that she had danced heart’s truth,
    Drew a knife to strike him dead,
    I could but leave him to his fate;
    For, no matter what is said,
    They had all that had their hate....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
