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.
A youth to whom was given
So much of earth - so much of heaven,
And such impetuous blood.

My brain
Worked with a dim and undetermined sense
Of unknown modes of being.
All good poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquillity.
Suffering is permanent, obscure, and dark, And shares the nature of infinity.
Strongest minds
Are often those of whom the noisy world
Hears least.
