Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy St. Paddy’s Day!

Here is the US we celebrate St. Pat’s with lots of green and lots of beer and even lots of green beer.  But instead of that I’ve decided to share a few quotes from some well known Irish authors.

And of course I may have a Guinness, simply to honor the occasion.  But on to those quotations:

“What can be explained is not poetry.”                                                                                                                            ― W.B. Yeats

“Being Irish, he had an abiding sense of tragedy, which sustained him through temporary periods of joy.” 
― W.B. Yeats

“All I know is a door into the dark” 
― Seamus Heaney

“Walk on air against your better judgement.” 
― Seamus Heaney

“Literature is news that stays news.” 
― Ezra Pound

“And the days are not full enough
And the nights are not full enough
And life slips by like a field mouse
Not shaking the grass” 
― Ezra Pound

And one from St. Patrick himself:

Be still and know that I am God.
Be still and know that I am.
Be still and know.
Be still.
St. Patrick
