A Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

What if you slept? And what if, in your sleep, you dreamed?
And what if, in your dream, you went to heaven
and there plucked an strange and beautiful flower?
And what if, when you awoke, you had the flower in your hand?
Ah, what then?

A Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

"I was rear'd/In the great city,pent 'mid cloisters dim/...But thou ,my babe,shalt wander like a breeze,"...Of that eternal language,which thy God/Utters,who from eternity doth teach/Himself in all,and all things in himself.

A Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge on yielding

So will I build my altar in the fields, And the blue sky my fretted dome shall be, And the sweet fragrance that the wild flower yields Shall be the incense I will yield to thee.

A Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge on dependence, difficulty, logic, poetry, poets, reason, and science

Poetry, even that of the loftiest, and seemingly, that of the wildest odes, [has] a logic of its own as severe as that of science; and more difficult, because more subtle, more complex, and dependent on more and more fugitive causes. In the truly great poets... there is a reason assignable, not only for every word, but for the position of every word.

A Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge on christ, god, good, grace, men, religion, soul, superstition, thought, and work

The Jews would not willingly tread upon the smallest piece of paper in their way, but took it up; for possibly, they say, the name of God may be on it. Though there was a little superstition in this, yet truly there is nothing but good religion in it, if we apply it to men. Trample not on any; there may be some work of grace there, that thou knowest not of. The name of God may be written upon that soul thou treadest on; it may be a soul that Christ thought so much of, as to give His precious blood for it; therefore despise it not.
