NUMBER:6867
AUTHOR:Alfred Tennyson Tennyson (1809–1892)
QUOTATION:  No more subtle master under heaven
Than is the maiden passion for a maid,
Not only to keep down the base in man
But teach high thought and amiable words
And courtliness and the desire of fame
And love of truth and all that makes a man.
ATTRIBUTION:Idylls of the King: Guinevere. Line 475.
