Richard Crashaw in Wikipedia
Welcome, all wonders in one sight! Eternity shut in a span.
O thou undaunted daughter of desires! / By all thy dower of lights and fires; / By all the eagle in thee, all the dove; / By all thy lives and deaths of love; / By thy large draughts of intellectual day.
Farewell house, and farewell home! / She's for the Moors, and martyrdom.
It was Thy day, sweet! and did rise / Not from the East, but from Thine eyes.
Life, that dares send / A challenge to his end, / And when it comes say, `Welcome, friend!'
Few things are brought to a successful issue by impetuous desire, but most by calm and prudent forethought
There is nothing wrong with being afraid---but there is nothing more wrong than allowing that to be your master.
(May 14, 1936 - December 20, 1973)
A ship is safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are for.
