William Blake

Energy is eternal delight.

It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend.

If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite.

I must create a system, or be enslaved by another man's.

To generalize is to be an idiot.

No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.

To see a world in a Grain of Sand,And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,And eternity in an hour.

Always be ready to speak your mind and a base man will avoid you.

Innocence dwells with Wisdom, but never with Ignorance.

Those who restrain desire, do so because theirs is weak enough to be restrained.

The man who never alters his opinions is like standing water, and breeds reptiles of the mind.

I myself do nothing. The Holy Spirit accomplishes all through me.

A truth that's told with bad intent, Beats all the lies you can invent.

Love seeketh not itself to please,Nor for itself hath any care,But for another gives its ease,And builds a Heaven in Hell's despair.

I have always found that angels have the vanity to speak of themselves as the only wise.

He who binds himself to joyDoth the winged life destroy;But he who kisses the joy as it fliesLives in Eternity's sunrise.

He who desires, but acts not, breeds pestilence.

Those who control their passions do so because their passions are weak enough to be controlled.

No bird soars too high, if he soars with his own wings.

When thou seest an eagle, thou seest a portion of genius; lift up thy head!

Thou art a Man, God is no more.Thy own humanity learn to adore.

To see a world in a grain of sand and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour.

The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom

He who binds to himself a joy, does the winged life destroy: But he who kisses the joy as it flies, lives in eternity's sun rise.

As I was walking among the fires of Hell,delighted with the enjoyments of Genius;which to Angels look like torment and insanity.I collected some of their Proverbs.
