He is a man speaking to men: a man, it is true, endued with more lively sensibility,
more enthusiasm and tenderness, who has a greater knowledge of human nature,
and a more comprehensive soul, than are supposed to be common among mankind;
a man pleased with his own passions and volitions, and who rejoices more than other men in the spirit of life that is in him;
delighting to contemplate similar volitions and passions as manifested in the goings-on of the universe,
and habitually impelled to create them where he does not find them.
~ William Wordsworth
