The Greatest Writer

(bust of The Bard on one of my bookshelves)

Lines from “Shakespeare” by Matthew Arnold:

We ask and ask–Thou smilest and art still./Out-topping knowledge.

All pains the immortal spirit must endure,/All weakness which impairs, all griefs which bow,/Find their sole voice in that victorious brow.
