A poet is a nightingale, who sits in darkness and sings to cheer its own solitude with sweet sounds.More Percy Bysshe Shelley quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Unfathomable Sea! whose waves are years, Ocean of Time, whose waters of deep woe Are brackish with the salt of human tears! Thou shoreless flood, which in thy ebb and flow Claspest the limits of mortality! And sick of prey, yet howling on for more, Vomitest thy wrecks on its inhospitable shore, Treacherous in calm, and terrible in storm, Who shall put forth on thee, Unfathomable sea?More Percy Bysshe Shelley quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
So is Hope Changed for Despair-one laid upon the shelf, We take the other. Under heaven's high cope Fortune is god-all you endure and do Depends on circumstance as much as you.More Percy Bysshe Shelley quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
This is Heaven, when pain and evil cease, and when the Benignant Principle, untrammelled and uncontrolled, visits in the fulness of its power the universal frame of things.More Percy Bysshe Shelley quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Human vanity is so constituted that it stiffens before difficulties. The more an object conceals itself from our eyes, the greater the effort we make to seize it, because it pricks our pride, it excites our curiosity and it appears interesting. In fighting for his God everyone, in fact, fights only for the interest of his own vanity, which, of all the passions produced bye the mal-organization of society, is the quickest to take offense, and the most capable of committing the greatest follies.More Percy Bysshe Shelley quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
