Eleanor Farjeon Quote

Picture Quote:

In Arcady there lies a crystal spring 
 Ring'd all about with green melodious reeds 
 Swaying seal'd music up and down the wind. 
 Here on its time-defaced pedestal 
 The image of a half-forgotten God 
 Crumbles to its complete oblivion.  - Eleanor Farjeon

Quote of the day

Genius is, to be sure, not a matter of arbitrariness, but rather of freedom, just as wit, love, and faith, which once shall become arts and disciplines. We should demand genius from everybody, without, however, expecting it.
