"What seem our worst prayers may really be, in God's eyes, our best. Those, I mean, which are least supported by devotional feeling. For these may come from a deeper level than feeling. God sometimes seems to speak to us most intimately when he catches us, as it were, off our guard."
C. S. Lewis

William Blake

He who would do good to another must do it in Minute Particulars: general Good is the plea of the scoundrel, hypocrite, and flatterer, for Art and Science cannot exist but in minutely organized Particulars.
William Blake

I have no name: I am but two days old. What shall I call thee? I happy am, Joy is my name. Sweet joy befall thee!
William Blake

I must create a system or be enslaved by another mans; I will not reason and compare: my business is to create.

If the Sun and Moon should ever doubt, they'd immediately go out.

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

It is not because angels are holier than men or devils that makes them angels, but because they do not expect holiness from one another, but from God only.

Lives in eternity's sun rise.
William Blake

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.
William Blake

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

Prisons are built with stones of Law. Brothels with the bricks of religion.
William Blake

Prudence is a rich, ugly, old maid courted by incapacity.
William Blake

That the Jews assumed a right exclusively to the benefits of God will be a lasting witness against them and the same will it be against Christians.
William Blake

William Blake

The fool who persists in his folly will become wise.
William Blake

The foundation of empire is art and science. Remove them or degrade them, and the empire is no more. Empire follows art and not vice versa as Englishmen suppose.

William Blake

The Goddess Fortune is the devil's servant, ready to kiss any one's ass.
William Blake

The hours of folly are measured by the clock; but of wisdom, no clock can measure.
William Blake

The inquiry in England is not whether a man has talents and genius, but whether he is passive and polite and a virtuous ass and obedient to noblemen's opinions in art and science. If he is, he is a good man. If not, he must be starved.
William Blake

The man who never in his mind and thoughts travel'd to heaven is no artist.
William Blake

The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.
William Blake

The tigers of wrath are wiser than the horses of instruction.

William Blake

Want of money and the distress of a thief can never be alleged as the cause of his thieving, for many honest people endure greater hardships with fortitude. We must therefore seek the cause elsewhere than in want of money, for that is the miser's passion, not the thief s.
William Blake

What is a wife and what is a harlot? What is a church and what is a theatre? are they two and not one? Can they exist separate? Are not religion and politics the same thing? Brotherhood is religion. O demonstrations of reason dividing families in cruelty and pride!
William Blake

What is grand is necessarily obscure to weak men. That which can be made explicit to the idiot is not worth my care.
William Blake

What is now proved was once only imagined.
