Quote by John Keats
'Beauty is truth, truth beauty,' that is allYe know on Earth, and all ye need to know.
This quote is from John Keats' poem "Ode on a Grecian Urn" and suggests that beauty and truth are interconnected and essential. It implies that by appreciating beauty we can attain a deeper understanding of truth, and vice versa. Keats suggests that beauty and truth hold ultimate significance in the human experience, existing as the fundamental knowledge that we should seek and cherish. By emphasizing this connection, he suggests that pursuing and embracing beauty can lead us to uncover profound truths about life and existence.
Many a play is like a painted backdrop, something to be looked at from the front. An Ibsen play is like a black forest, something you can enter, something you can walk about in. There you can lose yourself: you can lose yourself. And once inside, you find such wonderful glades, such beautiful, sunlit places.
Whenever a person says to you that they are as innocent as lambs in all concerning money, look well after your own money, for they are dead certain to collar it, if they can. Whenever a person proclaims to you 'In worldly matters I'm a child,' you consider that that person is only a crying off from being held accountable, and that you have got that person's number, and it's Number One. Now, I am not a poetical man myself, except in a vocal way, when it goes round a company, but I'm a practical one, and that's my experience. So's this rule. Fast and loose in one thing, Fast and loose in everything. I never knew it fail. No more will you. Nor no one.
