Quote
"The mind,the spirit, the Promethean spark,
The lightning of my being is as bright,
Pervading and far darting as your own,
And shall not yield to yours,though cooped in clay!
Answer, or I will teach what I am."

— Lord Byron- (Manfred)

John Keats’s handwritten poem “To Fanny”. The page reads:

Ah dearest love! sweet home of all my fears,
And hopes, and joys, and panting miseries
To night, if I may guess, thy beauty wears
A smiling of such delight,
As brilliant and as bright,
As when with ravished, aching, vassal eyes,
Lost in soft amaze,
I gaze, I gaze!
