“The East bow'd low before the blast, In patient, deep disdain. She let the legions thunder past, And plunged in thought again.”
As quoted in: The Living Age, Volume 105 (1870), p. 236, "From the Spectator: A Buddhist Matthew Arnold"
“A man of genius makes no mistakes; his errors are volitional and are the portals of discovery.”
“Rise like Lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number —
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you —
Ye are many — they are few.”
―Percy Bysshe Shelley
