A Base Man will Avoid You

“Overflowing Fountain”  painting by Jennifer Marshall

 

from  “Proverbs of Hell” by William Blake:

The cistern contains; the fountain overflows.

One thought, fills immensity.

Always be ready to speak your mind, and a base man will avoid you.

Every thing possible to be believ’d is an image of truth.

The eagle never lost so much time, as when he submitted to learn of the crow.

~ The fox provides for himself, but God provides for the lion.

Think in the morning. Act in the noon. Eat in the evening. Sleep in the night

. He who has suffer’d you to impose on him knows you.

 

 

From The Marriage of Heaven and Hell
