A Quote by William Wordsworth on charm, feeling, interest, love, mountains, needs, and passion

The sounding cataract Haunted me like a passion; the tall rock, The mountain, and the deep and gloomy wood, Their colours and their forms, were then to me An appetite,-a feeling and a love, That had no need of a remoter charm By thoughts supplied, nor any interest Unborrowed from the eye.

William Wordsworth (1770 - 1850)
