Bear in mind that love divorced from wisdom is no longer love.
Thy light alone - like mist o’er mountains driven,
Or music by the night wind sent
Through strings of some still instrument,
Or moonlight on a midnight stream,
Gives grace and truth to life’s unquiet dream.
From ‘Hymn to Intellectual Beauty’, 1817
Percy Bysshe Shelley
The Poem, The Song, The Picture … is only Water drawn from the Well of the People and it should be given back to them in a Cup of Beauty so that they may Drink and Drinking, Understand Themselves.
John Hensher - inscribed on a plaque at The Bleddfa Centre for the Creative Spirit, Powys.
