God, I love Lord Byron.

'Tis the perception of the beautiful,
A fine extension of the faculties,
Platonic, universal, wonderful,
Drawn from the stars, and filtered through the skies,
Without which life would be extremely dull.

(Don Juan, canto 1, stanza 38).

It is very iniquitous to make me pay my debts--you have no idea of the pain it gives one. (26 Oct. 1819).

Many more here; I haven't time this second to c/p my favourites.
