William Morris fue un arquitecto, diseñador y maestro textil, traductor, poeta, novelista y activista socialista. Asociado con el movimiento británico Arts and Crafts, fue uno de los principales promotores de la reactivación del arte textil tradicional manteniendo, recuperando y mejorando los métodos de producción artesanales frente a la producción en cadena e industrial. Fue un gran defensor de la conservación del patrimonio arquitectónico religioso y civil. Sus aportaciones literarias contribuyeron a extender el género moderno de la fantasía. Desempeñó un importante y muy activo papel en la propaganda y difusión, mediante escritos, mítines y conferencias, del incipiente movimiento socialista británico.

Frases William Morris

„Love is enough: cherish life that abideth,
Lest ye die ere ye know him, and curse and misname him;
For who knows in what ruin of all hope he hideth,
On what wings of the terror of darkness he rideth?“

— William Morris
Context: Love is enough: cherish life that abideth, Lest ye die ere ye know him, and curse and misname him; For who knows in what ruin of all hope he hideth, On what wings of the terror of darkness he rideth? And what is the joy of man's life that ye blame him For his bliss grown a sword, and his rest grown a fire?

„Let us speak, love, together some words of our story,
That our lips as they part may remember the glory!“

— William Morris
Context: Let us speak, love, together some words of our story, That our lips as they part may remember the glory! O soft day, O calm day, made clear for our sake!

„So long as the system of competition in the production and exchange of the means of life goes on, the degradation of the arts will go on“

— William Morris
Context: So long as the system of competition in the production and exchange of the means of life goes on, the degradation of the arts will go on; and if that system is to last for ever, then art is doomed, and will surely die; that is to say, civilization will die. "Art Under Plutocracy" (1883).

„It may be yet the Gods will have me glad!
Yet, Love, I would that thee and pain I had!“

— William Morris
Context: Forgetfulness of grief I yet may gain; In some wise may come ending to my pain; It may be yet the Gods will have me glad! Yet, Love, I would that thee and pain I had! "The Death of Paris".

„Dreamer of dreams, born out of my due time,
Why should I strive to set the crooked straight?“

— William Morris
Context: Dreamer of dreams, born out of my due time, Why should I strive to set the crooked straight? Let it suffice me that my murmuring rhyme Beats with light wing against the ivory gate, Telling a tale not too importunate To those who in the sleepy region stay, Lulled by the singer of an empty day.

„Therefore, I bid you not dwell in hell but in heaven, or while ye must, upon earth, which is a part of heaven, and forsooth no foul part.“

— William Morris
Context: Forsooth, brothers, fellowship is heaven, and lack of fellowship is hell: fellowship is life, and lack of fellowship is death: and the deeds that ye do upon the earth, it is for fellowship's sake that ye do them, and the life that is in it, that shall live on and on for ever, and each one of you part of it, while many a man's life upon the earth from the earth shall wane. Therefore, I bid you not dwell in hell but in heaven, or while ye must, upon earth, which is a part of heaven, and forsooth no foul part. Ch. 4: The Voice of John Ball

„Masters, I have to tell a tale of woe,
A tale of folly and of wasted life“

— William Morris
Context: Masters, I have to tell a tale of woe, A tale of folly and of wasted life, Hope against hope, the bitter dregs of strife, Ending, where all things end, in death at last. Introductory verse.

„Love is enough: though the World be a-waning
And the woods have no voice but the voice of complaining“

— William Morris
Context: Love is enough: though the World be a-waning And the woods have no voice but the voice of complaining, Though the sky be too dark for dim eyes to discover The gold-cups and daisies fair blooming thereunder, Though the hills be held shadows, and the sea a dark wonder, And this day draw a veil over all deeds passed over, Yet their hands shall not tremble, their feet shall not falter; The void shall not weary, the fear shall not alter These lips and these eyes of the loved and the lover.

„Alas, alas! another day gone by,
Another day and no soul come“

— William Morris
Context: "Alas, alas! another day gone by, Another day and no soul come," she said; "Another year, and still I am not dead!" And with that word once more her head she raised, And on the trembling man with great eyes gazed.

„No roaming now, my wars are passed away,
No long dull days devoid of happiness,
When such a love my yearning heart shall bless.“

— William Morris
Context: So on he went, and on the way he thought Of all the glorious things of yesterday, Nought of the price whereat they must be bought, But ever to himself did softly say "No roaming now, my wars are passed away, No long dull days devoid of happiness, When such a love my yearning heart shall bless."

„Love is enough: have no thought for to-morrow“

— William Morris
Context: Love is enough: have no thought for to-morrow If ye lie down this even in rest from your pain, Ye who have paid for your bliss with great sorrow...

„Ending, where all things end, in death at last.“

— William Morris
Context: Masters, I have to tell a tale of woe, A tale of folly and of wasted life, Hope against hope, the bitter dregs of strife, Ending, where all things end, in death at last. Introductory verse.

„Love is enough: ho ye who seek saving,
Go no further; come hither; there have been who have found it“

— William Morris
Context: Love is enough: ho ye who seek saving, Go no further; come hither; there have been who have found it, And these know the House of Fulfilment of Craving; These know the Cup with the roses around it; These know the World's Wound and the balm that hath bound it: Cry out, the World heedeth not, "Love, lead us home!"

„It happened once, some men of Italy
Midst the Greek Islands went a sea-roving,
And much good fortune had they on the sea“

— William Morris
Context: It happened once, some men of Italy Midst the Greek Islands went a sea-roving, And much good fortune had they on the sea: Of many a man they had the ransoming, And many a chain they gat and goodly thing; And midst their voyage to an isle they came, Whereof my story keepeth not the name.

„The dreams of the dawn wherein death and hope strive.“

— William Morris
Context: Lo, the lovers unloved that draw nigh for your blessing! For your tale makes the dreaming whereby yet they live The dreams of the day with their hopes of redressing, The dreams of the night with the kisses they give, The dreams of the dawn wherein death and hope strive.

„Pass by me, and hearken, and think of me not!“

— William Morris
Context: Love is enough: draw near and behold me Ye who pass by the way to your rest and your laughter, And are full of the hope of the dawn coming after; For the strong of the world have bought me and sold me And my house is all wasted from threshold to rafter. — Pass by me, and hearken, and think of me not!
