Samuel Taylor Coleridge
1772 - 1834

Poet, author of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

1817 - from Biographia Literaria
Each man is the best judge of his own happiness, and to himself must it therefore be entrusted.

1825 - from The Friend
The heart should be fed upon the truth, as insects on a leaf, till it be tinged with the color, and show its food in every minutest fibre.
