Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834) was a poet, critic, and philosopher who, with his friend William Wordsworth, was one of the founders of the Romantic movement.

Among his best known works are The Rime of the Ancient Mariner and Kubla Khan.

The quote about the 'androgynous* mind' appears in Specimens of the Table Talk of S.T. Coleridge (1835) by Henry N. Coleridge. The exact quote reads,  'a great mind must be androgynous'.
