Quote Bullet

It were as wise to cast a violet into a crucible that you might discover the formal principle of its color and odor, as seek to transfuse from one language into another the creations of a poet. The plant must spring again from its seed, or it will bear no flower -- and this is the burthen of the curse of Babel.
~ Percy Bysshe Shelley - [Translation]

A majestic form and graceful motions will express themselves through the most barbarous and tasteless costume.
~ Percy Bysshe Shelley - [Dress]
