Anarchist, 'great lover of mankind, & atheist.'

'People take for gospel all I say, and go away continually with false impressions . . . I am so changeable, being everything by turns and nothing long - such a strange melange of good and evil . . . But there are two sentiments to which I am constant - a strong sense of liberty, and a detestation of cant, and neither is calculated to gain me friends.'

Lord Byron

"I'll be a poet, a writer, a dramatist. Somehow or other I'll be famous,
and if not famous, I'll be notorious."

Oscar Wilde

"Art is long, and Time is fleeting,
And our hearts, though stout and brave,
Still, like muffled drums are beating
Funeral marches to the grave."
