Storm's Journal

The good are attracted by men's perceptions
And think not for themselves;
Til Experience teaches them to catch
And to cage fairies and elves.

And then the knave begins to snarl,
And the hypocrite to howl;
And all his good friends shew their private ends,
And the eagle is known from the owl.

(William Blake, Motto to Songs of Innocence and Experience)
