William Blake

“IV   The bounded is loathed by its possessor. The same dull round even of a universe would soon become a mill with complicated wheels.

V   If the many become the same as the few, when possess'd, More! More! is the cry of a mistaken soul, less than All cannot satisfy Man.

VI   If any could desire what he is incapable of possessing, despair must be his eternal lot.

VII   The desire of Man being Infinite the possession is Infinite & himself Infinite.”
