Quotations from George William Russell


Any relations in a social order will endure, if there is infused into them some of that spirit of human sympathy which qualifies life for immortality.

Open letter to the Masters of Dublin, Irish Times (October 7, 1913)

We may fight against what is wrong, but if we allow ourselves to hate, that is to insure our spiritual defeat and our likeness to what we hate.

The Living Torch (1937)

You can't evoke great spirits and eat plums at the same time.

Said to William Butler Yeats during a magical ritual
