William Wordsworth Quote

And from my pillow, looking forth by light
Of moon or favouring stars, I could behold
The antechapel where the statue stood
Of Newton with his prism and silent face,
The marble index of a mind for ever
Voyaging through strange seas of Thought, alone.

On Isaac Newton

The Prelude (1850), Book 3, Lines 58–63
