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

The sounding cataract Haunted me like a passion; the tall rock, The mountain, and the deep and gloomy wood, An appetite; a feeling and a love that had no need of a remoter charm by thought supplied, nor any interest Unborrowed from the eye.
