George Gordon, Lord Byron
Quotations



"Who killed John Keats?
'I,' says the Quarterly,
So savage and Tartarly;
''Twas one of my feats.'

Who shot the arrow?
'The poet-priest Milman
(So ready to kill man),
Or Southey or Barrow.'
"
- Poem "John Keats"

"One hates an author that's all author"
 
"I do not think publishing at all creditable either to men or women, and (though you will not believe me) very often fell ashamed of it myself."
- in a letter to Lady Carol Lamb
 
"Always laugh when you can. It is cheap medicine."
 
"I awoke and found myself famous"
- On the overnight success as the epic poem "Childe Harold's Pilgrimage"
 
"I will have nothing to do with your immortality; we are miserable enough in this life, without the absurdity of speculating upon another. "
