Creative Quotations from . . .
William Wordsworth
(1770-1850) born on
Apr 07
English poet. His "Lyrical Ballads," 1798 are noted for their worship of nature and humanitarianism; poet laureate, 1843-50.
The youth who daily farther from the east
Must travel, still is Nature's priest,
And by the vision splendid
Is on his way attended:
At length the man perceives it die away,
And fade into the light of common day.

The mightiest lever known to the moral world, imagination.
Is there not
An art, a music, and a stream of words
That shalt be life, the acknowledged voice of life?
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers.
Give all thou canst; high Heaven rejects the lore
Of nicely-calculated less or more.
