A Quote by William Wordsworth on glory, joy, madness, mountains, poets, pride, soul, thought, and youth

I thought of Chatterton, the marvellous boy, The sleepless soul that perished in his pride; Of him who walked in glory and in joy, Following his plough, along the mountain-side. By our own spirits we are deified; We Poets in our youth begin in gladness, But thereof come in the end despondency and madness.

A Quote by William Wordsworth on day, dreams, earth, glory, and time

There was a time when meadow, grove and stream, The earth, and every common sight, To me did seem Apparelled in celestial light, The glory and the freshness of a dream. It is not now as it hath been of yore: - Turn wheresoe'er I may, By night or day, The things which I have seen I now can see no more.
