"Every white will have its black, And every sweet its sour." -- Thomas Percy
Thomas Percy (13 April 1729 — 30 September 1811) was Bishop of Dromore. Before being made bishop, he was chaplain to George III. Percy's greatest contribution is considered to be his Reliques of Ancient English Poetry (1765), the first of the great ballad collections, which was the one work most responsible for the ballad revival in English poetry that was a significant part of the Romantic movement.
