John Keats
Quotations



"Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard are sweeter. "

"If poetry comes not as naturally as the leaves to a tree, it better not come at all"
 
"Don't be discouraged by a failure. It can be a positive experience. Failure is, in a sense, the highway to success, inasmuch as every discovery of what is false leads us to seek earnestly after what is true, and every fresh experience points out some form of error which we shall afterwards carefully avoid."
 
"Poetry should please by a fine excess and not by singularity. It should strike the reader as a wording of his own highest thoughts, and appear almost as a remembrance."
 
"Negative Capability, that is when man is capable of being in uncertainties, Mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact & reason."
 
"Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard are sweeter. "
