I will go further, and assert that nature without culture can often do more to deserve praise than culture without nature.
To A Poet, Who Would Have Me Praise Certain Bad Poets, Imitators Of His And Mine
by William Butler Yeats
You say, as I have often given tongue
In praise of what another's said or sung,
'Twere politic to do the like by these;
But was there ever dog that praised his fleas?
