William Butler Yeats
b. 6-13-1865; Sandymount, County Dublin, Ireland
d. 1-28-1939; Menton, France

William Butler Yeats, Irish poet and dramatist, was one of the foremost literary figures of the 20th century and awarded the 1923 Nobel Prize for Literature. He had life-long interest in mysticism that were further fueled by the writings of Emanuel Swedenborg. He was infatuated with Maud Gonne, attended the salons of Mallarme in Paris, and served as an Irish senator.

William Butler Yeats quotes ~
• “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”
• “Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking.”
• “How can we know the dancer from the dance?”
• “In dreams begins responsibility.”
• “Words are always getting conventionalized to some secondary meaning. It is one of the works of poetry to take the truants in custody and bring them back to their right senses.”
• “We make out of the quarrel with others, rhetoric, but of the quarrel with ourselves, poetry.”
• “Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity. ...”

FYI - The title of Chinua Achebe's Things Fall Apart is from a line in Yeats poem “The Second Coming”.

Charlotte Mary Yonge
b. 8-11-1823; Otterbourne, Hampshire, England
d. 5-24-1901; Otterbourne

Charlotte Mary Yonge, much respected and read in the 19th century, has lost much of her standing. Today, The Heir of Redclyffe and The Daisy Chain are in print.

Charlotte Mary Yonge quote ~
• “When the venture has been made of dealing with historical events and characters, it always seems fair towards the reader to avow what liberties have been taken, and how much of the sketch is founded on history.”

Emile Zola, Art Print
Emile Zola

Emile Zola
b. 4-2-1840; Paris, France
d. 9-29-1902; Paris

Emile Zola, 19th Century French novelist in the literary school of naturalism, wrote an open letter accusing the French government of anti-semitism in the wrongful imprisonment of Alfred Dreyfus.

Emile Zola quotes ~
• “I am here to live out loud.”
• “The fate of animals is of greater importance to me than the fear of appearing ridiculous; it is indissolubly connected with the fate of men.”
• “Tis better to plumb the depths of unity than forever scratch the surface of variety.”
• “If you shut up truth and bury it under the ground, it will but grow, and gather to itself such explosive power that the day it bursts through it will blow up everything in its way.”
