Percy Bysshe Shelley

Percy Bysshe Shelley

he was one of the major English Romantic poets
The day becomes more solemn and serene When noon is past; there is a harmony In autumn, and a lustre in its sky, Which through the summer is not heard or seen, As if it could not be, as if it had not been! Thus let thy power, which like the truth Of nature on my passive youth Descended, to my onward life supply Its calm, to one who worships thee, And every form containing thee, Whom, SPIRIT fair, thy spells did bind To fear himself, and love all human kind.More Percy Bysshe Shelley quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Commerce has set the mark of selfishness, the signet of its all-enslaving power, upon a shining ore, and called it gold: before whose image bow the vulgar great, the vainly rich, the miserable proud, the mob of peasants, nobles, priests, and kings, and with blind feelings reverence the power that grinds them to the dust of misery.More Percy Bysshe Shelley quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Gold is a living god and rules in scorn, All earthly things but virtue.More Percy Bysshe Shelley quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
