I am the poet of the poor, because I was poor when I loved; since I could not give gifts, I gave words.
I am the poor man's poet; because I am poor myself and I have known what it is to be in love. Not being able to pay them in presents, I pay my mistresses in poetry.
Let him who loves, where love success may find,
Spread all his sails before the prosperous wind;
But let poor youths who female scorn endure,
And hopeless burn, repair to me for cure.
Quote of the day
If one does away with the fact of the Resurrection, one also does away with the Cross, for both stand and fall together, and one would then have to find a new center for the whole message of the gospel.
