  • "There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,

    There is a rapture on the lonely shore,

    There is society, where none intrudes,

    By the deep sea, and music in its roar:

    I love not man the less, but Nature more,

    From these our interviews, in which I steal

    From all I may be, or have been before,

    To mingle with the Universe, and feel

    What I can ne'er express, yet cannot all conceal."

    - George Gordon Byron, 'Childe Harold', Canto iv, Verse 178.
