  •  Woodward is not alone. (6+ / 0-)

    Alas, Woodward is not the only '70s warrior to have grown comfortable by this still hearth, and thus stopped reading Tennyson a few lines too early:

    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven
    He must have found the rest of the poem taxing and unpleasant:
    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.

    Politics is about the improvement of people's lives. - Paul Wellstone

    •  One of my very favorite poems! (4+ / 0-)
                                   Come, my friends,
      'Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
      Push off, and sitting well in order smite
      The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
      To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
      Of all the western stars, until I die.
