Famous quotes containing the words hound and/or persian:

    Do you not hear me calling, white deer with no horns?
    I have been changed to a hound with one red ear;
    I have been in the Path of Stones and the Wood of Thorns....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Oh! thou clear spirit of clear fire, whom on these seas I as Persian once did worship, till in the sacramental act so burned by thee, that to this hour I bear the scar; I now know thee, thou clear spirit, and I now know that thy right worship is defiance. To neither love nor reverence wilt thou be kind; and e’en for hate thou canst but kill; and all are killed. No fearless fool now fronts thee.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
