It'll never be said in fair England that I slew a naked man.
-"Matty Groves," Fairport Convention


He who binds to himself a joy
Does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sunrise.
-William Blake

"What is needed is a completely revolutionized outlook on life, a new recognition of spiritual values and the possibilities of modern civilization. We need a new appreciation of the material progress, not as a means of money-making, but as the effective means of emancipating human energy from the pitiful struggles for base subsistence. We need a new conception of government of bringing the greatest well-being to the greatest number, a new conception of science, not to produce smokeless powder or airplanes or destruction but as the road to truth and the liberator of the human spirit." -Negro World, 1927


When, in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes,
I all alone beweep my outcast state
And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries
And look upon myself and curse my fate,
Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
Featured like him, like him with friends possess'd,
Desiring this man's art and that man's scope,
With what I most enjoy contented least;
Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,
Haply I think on thee, and then my state,
Like to the lark at break of day arising
From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven's gate;
For thy sweet love remember'd such wealth brings
That then I scorn to change my state with kings.
