˹ 145 - I would rather consider Shelley's poetry as a sublime fragmentary essay towards a presentment of the correspondency of the universe to Deity, of the natural to the spiritual, and of the actual to the ideal...
˹ 11 - He, gifted like the objective poet with the fuller perception of nature and man, is impelled to embody the thing he perceives, not so much with reference to the many below as to the one above him, the supreme Intelligence which apprehends all things in their absolute truth, an ultimate view ever aspired to, if but partially attained, by the poet's own soul.
˹ 110 - Because all I haply can and do, All that I am now, all I hope to be, Whence comes it save from fortune setting free Body and soul the purpose to pursue, God traced for both ;* If fetters, not a few, Of prejudice, convention, fall from me, These shall I bid men each in his degree Also God-guided bear, and gayly, too ? But little do or can the best of us : That little is achieved through Liberty.
˹ 203 - My own faults of expression were many ; but with care for a man or book such would be surmounted, and without it what avails the faultlessness of either ? I blame nobody, least of all myself, who did my best then and since ; for I lately gave time and pains to turn my work into what the many might instead of what the few must like ; but after all, I imagined another thing at first, and therefore leave as I find it.
˹ 293 - If, because of the immense fame of the following Tragedy, I wished to acquaint myself with it, and could only do so by the help of a translator, I should require him to be literal at every cost save that of absolute violence to our language.
˹ 290 - There is a great deal in the world that is delightful and beautiful; there is a great deal in it that is great and engrossing; but it will not last. All that is in the world, the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life, are but for a little while.
˹ 73 - He climbed to the top of Calvano, And God's own profound Was above me, and round me the mountains, And under, the sea, And within me my heart to bear witness What was and shall be.
˹ 123 - I don't think I shall let you hear, after all, the savage things about Popes and imaginative religions that I must say.
˹ 49 - And beneath upon the hem of it thou shalt make pomegranates of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, round about the hem thereof; and bells of gold between them round about : 34 A golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a pomegranate, upon the hem of the robe round about.
