Quotations and Images from William Blake:|
From 'Annotations to Berkeley's Siris'
"Knowledge is not by deduction,
But immediate by perception or sense at once.
Christ addresses himself to the man,
Not to his reason."
From the poem 'Night'
"The sun descending in the west,
The evening star does shine,
The birds are silent in their nest,
And I must seek for mine,
The moon like a flower,
In heavens high bower;
With silent delight,
Sits and smiles on the night."
The poem 'To Morning'
"O holy virgin! clad in purest white,
Unlock heav'n's golden gates, and issue forth;
Awake the dawn that sleeps in heaven; let light
Rise from the chambers of the east, and bring
The honied dew that cometh on waking day.
O radiant morning, salute the sun,
Rouz'd like a huntsman to the chace, and with
Thy buskin'd feet, appear upon our hills."
From the book 'Jerusalem'
"I give you the end of a golden string,
Only wind it into a ball;
It will lead you in at Heaven's gate,
Built in Jerusalem's wall."
'Ancient Of Days' 'Elohim Creating Adam'
'When The Morning Stars Sang Together'
