“Common sense in an uncommon degree is what the world calls wisdom.”
Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Literary Remains, Vol. 1

What if you slept?

What if you slept
And what if
In your sleep
You dreamed
And what if
In your dream
You went to heaven
And there plucked a strange and beautiful flower
And what if
When you awoke
You had that flower in you hand
Ah, what then?”
Samuel Taylor Coleridge, The Complete Poems

“Silence does not always mark wisdom.”
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
