Frasi Philip Sidney

„Fool," said my muse to me. "Look in thy heart and write.“

—  Philip Sidney, libro Astrophel and Stella

Sonnet 1,Concluding couplet from Loving in truth,and fain in verse my love to show
Compare: "Look, then, into thine heart and write", Henry W. Longfellow, Voices of the Night, Prelude.
Variante: Biting my truant pen, beating myself for spite:
"Fool!" said my muse to me, "look in thy heart, and write.
Origine: Astrophel and Stella (1591)
Contesto: .... But words came halting forth, wanting Invention's stay,
Invention, Nature's child, fled step-dame Study's blows,
And others' feet still seemed but strangers in my way.
Thus great with child to speak, and helpless in my throes,
Biting my truant pen, beating myself for spite:
"Fool," said my Muse to me, "look in thy heart and write."

„High-erected thoughts seated in the heart of courtesy.“

—  Philip Sidney, libro The Countess of Pembroke's Arcadia
