W. B. Yeats

We can make our minds so like still water that beings gather about us that they may see, it may be, their own images, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life because of our quiet. ― W. B. Yeats, from “Earth, Fire, and Water,” The Celtic Twilight: Faerie and Folklore.( Dover Publications September 7, 2011) Originally published January 1st 1893.
