Abstract:I have not the slightest feel of humility towards the public, or to anything in existence, but the eternal Being, the principle of beauty, and the memory of great men … I would be subdued before my friends, and thank them for subduing me, but among multitudes of men I have no feeling of stooping, I hate the idea of humility to them … I never wrote one single line of poetry with the least shadow of public thought.
