If feeling prompt not, if it doth not flow Fresh from the spirit's depths, with strong control Swaying to rapture every listener's soul, Idle your toil; the chase you may forego! Brood o'er your task! Together glue, Cook from another's feast your own ragout, Still prosecute your paltry game, And fan your ash-heaps into flame! Thus children's wonder you'll excite, And apes', if such your appetite; But that which issues from the heart alone, Will bend the hearts of others to your own. Faust in Goethe's Faust.
