“I fasted for some forty days on bread and buttermilk
For passing round the bottle with girls in rags or silk,
In country shawl or Paris cloak, had put my wits astray,
And whats the good of women for all that they can say
Is fol de rol de rolly O.”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
“The world doesnt make any heroes anymore.”
—Graham Greene (19041991)
