Famous quotes containing the words sailing and/or summer:
“The Colonel went out sailing,
He spoke with Turk and Jew
With Christian and with Infidel
For all tongues he knew.
O whats a wifeless man? said he
And he came sailing home.”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
“And a sigh heaves from all the small things on earth,
The books, the papers, the old garters and union-suit buttons
Kept in a white cardboard box somewhere ...
The summer demands and takes away too much,
But night, the reserved, the reticent, gives more than it takes.”
—John Ashbery (b. 1927)
