William Wordsworth Quote
If we had to earn our age by thinking for ourselves at least once a year, only a handful of people would reach adulthood.
About William Wordsworth
Wordsworth's magnum opus is generally considered to be The Prelude, a semi-autobiographical poem of his early years that he revised and expanded a number of times. It was posthumously titled and published by his wife in the year of his death, before which it was generally known as "the poem to Coleridge".
Wordsworth was Poet Laureate from 1843 until his death from pleurisy on 23 April 1850.
