Famous quotes containing the words butler, richard and/or pierce:

    Put the staff in my hands; for I go to the Fenians, O cleric, to chaunt
    The war-songs that roused them of old; they will rise, making clouds with their breath,
    Innumerable, singing, exultant; the clay underneath them shall pant,
    And demons be broken in pieces, and trampled beneath them in death.
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Words convey the mental treasures of one period to the generations that follow; and laden with this, their precious freight, they sail safely across gulfs of time in which empires have suffered shipwreck and the languages of common life have sunk into oblivion.
    —Anonymous. Quoted in Richard Chevenix Trench, On the Study of Words, lecture 1 (1858)

    At night thousands of names and slogans are outlined in neon, and searchlight beams often pierce the sky, perhaps announcing a motion picture premiere, perhaps the opening of a new hamburger stand.
    —For the State of California, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
