“Byron loved history—cleansed of nationalism and mythology—as the only truth about man... (Shelley ignored it, being wedded to an ideal uncomfortable with history). He made friends readily, for he was attractive in person and manners, fascinating in conversation, widely informed in literature and history, and more faithful to his friends than to his mistresses... Despite all his skeptical intelligence he succumbed again and again to the magnet that every healthy woman is to any healthy man.”

Will (and Ariel) Durant 1885 – 1981 CE
from Age of Napoleon
