In honor of today, I want to know who your favorite Irish authors, poets, and artists are! Here are a few of my own (complete with quotes):
-William Butler Yeats
" Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with the golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams beneath your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams."
-He Wishes For The Cloths of Heaven
-George Bernard Shaw
"I hear you say 'Why?' Always 'Why?' You see things; and you say 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say 'Why not?'"
-Back To Methuselah
*I love this quote so much that it is in both my OKC profile, and my LinkedIn.
"To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance."
-Phrases and Philosophies For The Use Of The Young
SPECIAL BONUS ROUND:
I also love Queen Medb
and the The Morrígan.
I know that they're not authors, poets, or artists....but they're too bad ass not to be included here.
So GT, who are some of your favorites?
