Famous quotes containing the words moon and/or paul:

    The quarrel of the sparrows in the eaves,
    The full round moon and the star-laden sky,
    And the loud song of the ever-singing leaves,
    Had hid away earth’s old and weary cry.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.
