Famous quotes containing the words pump and/or breast:

    Vivacity, leadership, must be had, and we are not allowed to be nice in choosing. We must fetch the pump with dirty water, if clean cannot be had.

    Did but our bodies touch,
    And laughed upon his breast to think
    Beast gave beast as much.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
