Quote of the Day (John Keats, Expressing Skepticism About His Calling)

"I am sometimes so very skeptical as to think poetry is a mere Jack-o-Lantern to whoever may chance to be struck with its brilliance.”—Poet John Keats, in a letter to friend Benjamin Bailey, March 13, 1818, from The Letters of John Keats: Complete Revised Edition, edited by H.Buxton Forman (1895)
