Quote of the day
 
Poetry is the breath and finer spirit of all knowledge; it is the impassioned expression which is in the countenance of all Science
In spite of difference of soil and climate, of language and manners, of laws and customs, — in spite of things silently gone out of mind, and things violently destroyed, the Poet binds together by passion and knowledge the vast empire of human society, as it is spread over the whole earth, and over all time … Poetry is the first and last of all knowledge — it is as immortal as the heart of man.
~ William Wordsworth ~
