CAAF: Perspective, with Lord Byron
From a letter to Annabella Milbanke, the to-be Lady Byron, written in 1815:
I thank you very much for your suggestions on Religion - but I must tell you at the hazard of losing whatever good opinion your gentleness may have bestowed upon me - that it is a source from which I never did - & I believe never can derive comfort... why I came here - I know not - where I shall go it is useless to enquire - in the midst of myriads of the living & the dead worlds - stars - systems - infinity - why should I be anxious about an atom?
