John Donne

English poet, satirist, lawyer, and priest, is now considered the preeminent representative of the metaphysical poets
He must pull out his own eyes, and see no creature, before he can say, he sees no God; He must be no man, and quench his reasonable soul, before he can say to himself, there is no God. John Donne quotes
