“Over these things I could not see;
These were the things that bounded me;
And I could touch them with my hand,
Almost, I thought, from where I stand.
And all at once things seemed so small
My breath came short, and scarce at all.”

(E. St. Vincent Millay in Renascence)

"Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee,
when my heart is overwhelmed: 
lead me to the rock that is higher than I."

"We envy no monarch his glittering crown,
But think ourselves happier far.
There's no place so pleasant as nature's green bow'rs,
And a crown's not as sweet as a garland of flowers."

Row me a boat

“The water is wide an’ I can’t cross over
Neither have I wings to fly
Build me a boat that can carry two
And both shall row my love an’ I.”
