William Butler Yeats quote

William Butler Yeats quotes
Books are but waste paper unless we spend in action the wisdom we get from thought - asleep. When we are weary of the living, we may repair to the dead, who have nothing of peevishness, pride, or design in their conversation.

~ William Butler Yeats (June 13, 1865 - January 28, 1939)
