Percy Bysshe Shelley: Neither curiosity, interest, pain nor pleasure

“I have neither curiosity, interest, pain nor pleasure, in anything, good or evil, they can say of me. I feel only a slight disgust, and a sort of wonder that they presume to write my name.”

Percy B. Shelley: Love repulsed

Love replused – but it returneth”
