John Keats
Quotations


Do you not see how necessary a world of pains and troubles is to school an intelligence and make it a soul?

I am certain of nothing but the holiness of the heart's affections, and the truth of imagination.

Praise or blame has but a momentary effect on the man whose love of beauty in the abstract makes him a severe critic on his own works.

The roaring of the wind is my wife and the stars through the window pane are my children. The mighty abstract idea I have of beauty in all things stifles the more divided and minute domestic happiness.

My imagination is a monastery and I am its monk.

With a great poet the sense of Beauty overcomes every other consideration, or rather obliterates all consideration.

Though a quarrel in the streets is a thing to be hated, the energies displayed in it are fine; the commonest man shows a grace in his quarrel.
