Famous quotes containing the word raving:

    Without, the frost, the blinding snow,
    The storm-wind’s moody madness—
    Within, the firelight’s ruddy glow,
    And childhood’s nest of gladness.
    The magic words shall hold thee fast:
    Thou shalt not heed the raving blast.
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    A mound of refuse or the sweepings of a street,
    Old kettles, old bottles, and a broken can,
    Old iron, old bones, old rags, that raving slut
    Who keeps the till. Now that my ladder’s gone,
    I must lie down where all the ladders start,
    In the foul rag-and-bone shop of the heart.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
