Percy Bysshe Shelley quotes

Percy Bysshe Shelley
All things are sold: the very light of heaven is venal earth's unsparing gifts of love, the smallest and most despicable things that lurk in the abysses of the deep, all objects of our life, even life itself, and the poor pittance which the laws allow of liberty, the fellowship of man, those duties which his heart of human love should urge him to perform instinctively, are bought and sold as in a public mart of not disguising selfishness, that sets on each its price, the stamp-mark of her reign.

Percy Bysshe Shelley
Here I swear, and as I break my oath may eternity blast me, here I swear that never will I forgive Christianity! It is the only point on which I allow myself to encourage revenge. Oh, how I wish I were the Antichrist, that it were mine to crush the Demon to hurl him to his native Hell never to rise again - I expect to gratify some of this insatiable feeling in Poetry.

Percy Bysshe Shelley
The Galilean is not a favorite of mine. So far from owing him any thanks for his favor, I cannot avoid confessing that I owe a secret grudge to his carpentership.

Percy Bysshe Shelley
Is it not odd that the only generous person I ever knew, who had money to be generous with, should be a stockbroker.

Percy Bysshe Shelley
Commerce has set the mark of selfishness, the signet of its allenslaving power, upon a shining ore, and called it gold: before whose image bow the vulgar great, the vainly rich, the miserable proud, the mob of peasants, nobles, priests, and kings, and with blind feelings reverence the power that grinds them to the dust of misery.

Percy Bysshe Shelley
Heaven's ebon vault, studded with stars unutterably bright, through which the moon's unclouded grandeur rolls, seems like a canopy which love has spread to curtain her sleeping world

Percy Bysshe Shelley
There was no corn - in the wide market-place all loathliest things, even human flesh, was sold They weighed it in small scales - and many a face was fixed in eager horror then his gold the miser brought the tender maid, grown bold through hunger, bared her scorned charms in vain.

Percy Bysshe Shelley
When my cats aren't happy, I'm not happy. Not because I care about their mood but because I know they're just sitting there thinking up ways to get even.
