Thank You for the Morning Light
Keepers of Wisdom. This week - William Morris (1834-1896)
“Apart from the desire to produce beautiful things, the leading passion of my life has been and is hatred of modern civilization.”
“With the arrogance of youth, I determined to do no less than to transform the world with Beauty. If I have succeeded in some small way, if only in one small corner of the world, amongst the men and women I love, then I shall count myself blessed, and blessed, and blessed, and the work goes on.”
“History has remembered the kings and warriors, because they destroyed; art has remembered the people, because they created.”
