“Full many a gem of purest ray serene,
The dark unfathom'd caves of ocean bear:
Full many a flower is born to blush unseen,
And waste its sweetness on the desert air.”
Thomas Gray, An Elegy Written In A Country Churchyard

“Poetry is thoughts that breathe, and words that burn.”
Thomas Gray, Selected Poems

“Where ignorance is bliss,
'Tis folly to be wise.

- Ode on a Distant Prospect of Eton College
