A Quote by Algernon Charles Swinburne on failure and songs

The more congenial page of some tenth-rate poeticule worn out with failure after failure and now squat in his hole like the tailless fox, he is curled up to snarl and whimper beneath the inaccessible vine of song.

Algernon Swinburne (1837 - 1909)
