    George Gordon Byron
    “Tis strange,-but true; for truth is always strange;

    George Gordon Byron
    “T is sweet to win, no matter how, one's laurels,
    By blood or ink; 't is sweet to put an end
    To strife; 't is sometimes sweet to have our quarrels,
    Particularly with a tiresome friend:
    Sweet is old wine in bottles, ale in barrels;
    Dear is the helpless creature we defend
    Against the world; and dear the schoolboy spot
    We ne'er forget, though there we are forgot.

    But sweeter still than this, than these, than all,
    Is first and passionate Love—it stands alone,
    Like Adam's recollection of his fall;
    The Tree of Knowledge has been plucked—all 's known—
    And Life yields nothing further to recall
    Worthy of this ambrosial sin, so shown,
    No doubt in fable, as the unforgiven
    Fire which Prometheus filched for us from Heaven.”
    George Gordon Byron, Don Juan
