William Blake Quotations


Sometimes greatness is achieved, not during a lifetime of effort, but after it. During his lifetime, William Blake was regarded as idiosyncratic and deranged. Blake’s views on religion sharply deviated from convention. Though Blake did not receive due recognition in his life, he was posthumously acclaimed as a glorious luminary. William Blake’s famous poems like “A Poison Tree“, “Human Abstract“, and “The Book of Thel“, amongst many others, make him a distinguished poet. Read William Blake quotations and fathom the depth of his views.

Energy: Energy is an eternal delight, and he who desires, but acts not, breeds pestilence.

Challenge: Great things are done when men and mountains meet.

Action: He who desires but acts not, breeds pestilence.

Insight: If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.

Adventure: In the universe, there are things that are known, and things that are unknown, and in between, there are doors.

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

Creativity: 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.

Dreams: What is now proved was once imagined.

Love: And we are put on Earth a little space, that we may learn to bear the beams of love.
