Inspiration

Most of us who turn to any subject we love remember some morning or evening hour when we got on a high stool to reach down an untried volume, or sat with parted lips listening to a new talker, or for very lack of books began to listen to the voices within, as the first traceable beginning of our love.
-George Eliot (1819-80), English novelist, editor. Middlemarch, bk. 2, ch. 15 (1871).

Passion, though a bad regulator, is a powerful spring.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-82), U.S. essayist, poet, philosopher. The Conduct of Life, "Considerations by the Way" (1860).

Had we never lov'd so kindly,
Had we never lov'd so blindly,
Never met- or never parted-
We had ne'er been broken-hearted.

-Robert Burns (1759-96), Scottish poet. Ae Fond Kiss.
