Famous quotes containing the words fire and/or heavy:

    Rumble thy bellyful! Spit, fire! Spout, rain!
    Nor rain, wind, thunder, fire are my daughters.
    I tax you not, you elements, with unkindness;
    I never gave you kingdom, called you children.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    O kinsmen of the Three in One,
    O kinsmen, bless the hands that play.
    The notes they waken shall live on
    When all this heavy history’s done;
    Our hands, our hands must ebb away.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
