  • Out of Ireland have we come,
    Great hatred, little room
    Maimed us at the start.
    I carry from my mother's womb
    A fanatic's heart.
  • I wonder anybody does anything at Oxford but dream and remember, the place is so beautiful. One almost expects the people to sing instead of speaking. It is all . . . like an opera.
  • A pity beyond all telling
    Is hid in the heart of love.
  • It is most important that we should keep in this country a certain leisured class. . . . I am of the opinion of the ancient Jewish book which says there is no wisdom without leisure.
  • Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned.
  • Englishmen are babes in philosophy and so prefer faction-fighting to the labour of its unfamiliar thought.
