“What is Grand is necessarily obscure to Weak men”

‎”You say that I want somebody to Elucidate my Ideas. But you ought to know that What is Grand is necessarily obscure to Weak men. That which can be made Explicit to the Idiot is not worth my care. The wisest of the Ancients consider’d what is not too Explicit as the fittest for Instruction, because it rouzes the faculties to act.”

William Blake, Letter to Dr. Trusler, 23rd Aug 1799
