Famous quotes containing the words fields and/or eye:

    For my part, I would rather look toward Rutland than Jerusalem. Rutland,—modern town,—land of ruts,—trivial and worn,—not too sacred,—with no holy sepulchre, but profane green fields and dusty roads, and opportunity to live as holy a life as you can, where the sacredness, if there is any, is all in yourself and not in the place.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Whether they knew or not,
    Goldsmith and Burke, Swift and the Bishop of Cloyne
    All hated Whiggery; but what is Whiggery?

    That never looked out of the eye of a saint
    Or out of drunkard’s eye.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
