William Morris
His Life

William Morris 
Love Is Enough

William Morris designed wallpaper, fabric and tile patterns, which have remained in production for over a century. Widely acknowledged as the father of the Arts & Crafts movement in England and North America, Morris worked to re-establish the value of hand crafted work in the industrial 19th century. His dictum: "Have nothing in your houses which you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful" is as valid today as it was when he wrote it in 1880.

A man of prodigious energy, Morris was also a painter, and a respected poet who was asked to be England's poet laureate by Queen Victoria, an honor he declined. Morris' other talents included designing and weaving tapestries and carpets, designing furniture and designing the typography for his own books.

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 pass'd 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.
