William Blake (28 November 1757 – 12 August 1827) was an English poet, painter, and printmaker. Largely unrecognised during his life, Blake is now considered a seminal figure in the history of the poetry and visual art of the Romantic Age. What he called his "prophetic works" were said by...
When thou seest an eagle, thou seest a portion of genius; lift up thy head!
No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.
Great things are done when men and mountains meet.
The man who never in his mind and thoughts travel'd to heaven is no artist.
We desire nothing so much as what we ought not to have.
A human being has a natural desire to have more of a good thing than he needs.
