Engrave this Quote Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

published in the collection The Wind Among the Reeds and quoted in the movie Equilibrium (2002)
-William Butler Yeats, He wishes for the Cloths of Heaven, 1899 Tell a Friend
