Lord Byron. "Those who will not reason are bigots, those who cannot, are fools, and those who dare not are slaves."

George Gordon, Lord Byron, was the quintessential poet of the Romantic era, writing and living with passion, emotion and adventure.

SO TRUE!  So please step to the left or step the the right. The choice is yours.  But for heaven's sake just get out of the way. No need to drag out the inevitable. Have some dignity.

She Walks In Beauty - George Gordon (Noel) Byron, 6th Baron Byron (January 22 1788 - April 19 1824), generally known as Lord Byron #romanticism.

She walks in beauty, Byron - my all time favorite poem. Not a book exactly, but I think it fits in the category.
