Wisdom is ofttimes nearer when we stoop than when we soar.
--William Wordsworth, (1770-1850)
P.556 - §15 (48:7.15) Stars are best discerned from the
lonely isolation of experiential depths, not from the
illuminated and ecstatic mountain tops.
William Wordsworth (7 April
1770 – 23 April 1850) was a major English Romantic poet who,
with Samuel Taylor Coleridge, helped to launch the Romantic
Age in English literature with the 1798 joint publication
Wordsworth's magnum opus is generally considered to be The
Prelude, a semiautobiographical poem of his early years
which he revised and expanded a number of times. It was
posthumously titled and published, prior to which it was
generally known as the poem "to Coleridge". Wordsworth was
Britain's Poet Laureate from 1843 until his death in 1850.
