John Keats quotes (26)

John Keats   Category: Poetry

Seasons of mists and mellow fruitfulness Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun; Conspiring with him how to load and bless With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run; To bend with apples the moss'd cottage-trees And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core; To swell the gourd and plump the hazel shells With a sweet kernel; to set budding more And still more later flowers for the bees Until they think warm days will never cease For Summer has o'er-brimm'd their clammy cells.

John Keats   Category: Music

There was an awful rainbow once in heaven: We know her woof her texture; she is given In the dull catalogue of common things. Philosophy will clip an angels wings.
John Keats   Category: Philosophy

Silence is deep as Eternity speech is shallow as Time.
John Keats   Category: Eternity

As the Swiss inscription says: Sprechen ist silbern Schweigen ist golden Speech is silvern Silence is golden; or as I might rather express it Speech is of Time Silence is of Eternity.

Adversity is sometimes hard upon a man; but for one man who can stand prosperity there are a hundred that will stand adversity.
John Keats   Category: Adversity

We are firm believers in the maxim that for all right judgment of any man or thing it is useful nay essential to see his good qualities before pronouncing on his bad.
John Keats   Category: Judgment

The only means of strengthening ones intellect is to make up ones mind about nothing to let the mind be a thoroughfare for all thoughts. Not a select party.
John Keats   Category: Intellect

When I have fears that I may cease to be Before my pen has gleaned my teeming brain.

I am certain of nothing but the Holiness of the Heart's affections and the Truth of the Imagination.
John Keats   Category: Holiday

How astonishingly does the chance of leaving the world improve a sense of its natural beauties upon us. Like poor Falstaff although I do not babble I think of green fields; I muse with the greatest affection on every flower I have know from my infancy their shapes and colours are as new to me as if I had just created them with superhuman fancy.
John Keats   Category: Sense

So many and so many and such glee.
