A Quote by Lord Lyttleton on chastity, corruption, death, heaven, inspiration, thought, and wishes

For his chaste Muse employ'd her heaven-taught lyre None but the noblest passions to inspire, Not one immoral, one corrupted thought, One line which, dying, he could wish to blot.

Lord Lyttleton (1709 - 1773)
