Famous quotes containing the words banners and/or yellow:

    Those banners come to bribe or threaten
    Or whisper that a man’s a fool
    Who when his own right king’s forgotten
    Cares what king sets up his rule.
    If he died long ago
    Why do you dread us so?
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    He will watch from dawn to gloom
    The lake-reflected sun illume
    The yellow bees in the ivy-bloom,
    Nor heed nor see, what things they be;
    But from these create he can
    Forms more real than living man,
    Nurslings of immortality!
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)
