A false enchantment can all too easily last a lifetime.
W. H. Auden
Sometimes if you want to see a change for the better, you have to take
things into your own hands.
Action: St. Augustine Quotes
God provides the wind, but man must raise the sails.
If the dull substance of my flesh were thought,
Injurious distance should not stop my way;
For then despite of space I would be brought,
From limits far remote, where thou dost stay.
No matter then although my foot did stand
Upon the farthest earth remov\'d from thee;
For nimble thought can jump both sea and land,
As soon as think the place where he would be.
But, ah! thought kills me that I am not thought,
To leap large lengths of miles when thou art gone,
But that so much of earth and water wrought,
I must attend, time\'s leisure with my moan;
Receiving nought by elements so slow
But heavy tears, badges of either\'s woe.
