The Lotus Eaters, Thomas Moran, Oil on Canvas
Ulysses
Though much is taken, much abides; and though 
We are not now that strength which in old days Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are—- One equal temper of heroic hearts, Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield. 
-Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Ulysses

Though much is taken, much abides; and though 

We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are—-
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
