An extract from a letter to Fanny Brawne, 13 October 1819

“I have been astonished that men could die martyrs

for their religion

I have shuddered at it,

I shudder no more.

I could be martyred for my religion.

Love is my religion

and I could die for that.

I could die for you.

My Creed is Love and you are its only tenet.”

― John Keats
