William Blake’s Words of Wisdom

It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend.”

“He whose face gives no light, shall never become a star.”

“He who kisses joy as it flies by will live in eternity’s sunrise.”

“Eternity is in love with the productions of time.”

“For all eternity, I forgive you and you forgive me.”

“If a thing loves, it is infinite.”

“Love seeketh not itself to please, nor for itself hath any care, but for another gives its ease, and builds a Heaven in Hell’s despair.”

“To See a World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower, Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour.”

“A man can’t soar too high, when he flies with his own wings.”

“Improvement makes strait roads, but the crooked roads without Improvement, are roads of Genius.”

“All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages.”

“A truth that’s told with bad intent beats all the lies you can invent.”

“Truth can never be told so as to be understood and not be believed.”

“Those who restrain desire do so because theirs is weak enough to be restrained.”

“The imagination is not a state: it is the human existence itself.”

“The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.”
