“The poetry of the earth is never dead.” – John Keats.

“The Public – a thing I cannot help looking upon as an enemy, and which I cannot address without feelings of hostility.”

“What the imagination seizes as beauty must be truth.”

“There is an electric fire in human nature tending to purify – so that among these human creatures there is continually some birth of new heroism. The pity is that we must wonder at it, as we should at finding a pearl in rubbish.”

“Though a quarrel in the streets is a thing to be hated, the energies displayed in it are fine; the commonest man shows a grace in his quarrel.”

It never fails to amaze me, when I read Keats (a young man who died an agonizing death in an unfamiliar and foreign land) and am totally able to relate to his sentiments…

    I am absolutely stealing that meme. I saw a bumper sticker one time that said “God your co-pilot? SATAN is my Tailgunner!”
