Maybe there should be a thread of although John Keats is teh awesome and we love him!!111one one, things he said that we disagree with... for me, it would have to be "truth is beauty" for one.

I have nothing but reverence for your tattoo! :wink:

And from what I remember, it said, "beauty is truth" which I have nothing against. It is only the "truth is beauty" part. Albeit he does not exactly say "truth is beautiful" which is really what I want to contest... and the more I think about it, the less that entire stanza makes any sense to me :?.
