„In nature there is nothing melancholy.“

—  Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Context: "Most musical, most melancholy" bird! A melancholy bird! Oh! idle thought! In nature there is nothing melancholy. But some night-wandering man, whose heart was pierced With the remembrance of a grievous wrong, Or slow distemper, or neglected love, (And so, poor wretch! filled all things with himself, And made all gentle sounds tell back the tale Of his own sorrow) he, and such as he, First named these notes a melancholy strain. The Nightingale: A Conversation Poem, lines 13-22 (1798).

„It sounds like stories from the land of spirits
If any man obtain that which he merits,
Or any merit that which he obtains.“

—  Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Context: How seldom, friend! a good great man inherits Honor or wealth, with all his worth and pains! It sounds like stories from the land of spirits If any man obtain that which he merits, Or any merit that which he obtains. ......... Greatness and goodness are not means, but ends! Hath he not always treasures, always friends, The good great man? Three treasures,—love and light, And calm thoughts, regular as infants' breath; And three firm friends, more sure than day and night,— Himself, his Maker, and the angel Death. "The Great Good Man" (1802).

„The poet, described in ideal perfection, brings the whole soul of man into activity, with the subordination of its faculties to each other according to their relative worth and dignity.“

—  Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Biographia Literaria
Biographia Literaria (1817), Context: The poet, described in ideal perfection, brings the whole soul of man into activity, with the subordination of its faculties to each other according to their relative worth and dignity. He diffuses a tone and spirit of unity, that blends, and (as it were) fuses, each into each, by that synthetic and magical power, to which I would exclusively appropriate the name of Imagination. Ch. XIV.

„Hast thou a charm to stay the morning-star
In his steep course?“

—  Samuel Taylor Coleridge
"Hymn in the Vale of Chamouni" (1802), Context: Hast thou a charm to stay the morning-star In his steep course? So long he seems to pause On thy bald awful head, О sovran Blanc! St. 1.

„Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Etiam egestas wisi a erat. Morbi imperdiet, mauris ac auctor dictum.“
