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!'
Society wants to see him cured. He wants to be cured. Society want to be safe. He wants to be safe.
The most worth-while thing is to try to put happiness into the lives of others.
Sir Robert Baden-Powell
(February 22, 1857 - January 08, 1941)
Loving all of it even while he had to hate some of it because he knows now that you don't love because: you love despite; not for the virtues, but despite the faults.
