Famous quotes containing the words body and/or hive:
“Though I knit my brow,
my gaze is fixed
Though I check my tongue,
this tortured face of mine
dissolves in a smile.
Though I drive my heart to hardness,
my body bears
When I see that man,
how on earth
can my anger
—Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)
“I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made:
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
