The poem this is from was converted into a song that my choir did my senior year of high school, its one of my favorites even 4 years later
One of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite poems, "Ulysses" by Alfred Lord Tennyson. It little profits that an idle king, By this still hearth, among these barren crags, Match’d with an aged wife, I mete and dole Unequal laws unto a savage race, That hoard, and sleep, and feed, and know not me. I cannot rest from travel: I will drink Life to the lees: All times I have enjoy’d Greatly, have suffer’d greatly, both with those That loved me, and alone, on shore, and when Thro’ scudding drifts the rainy Hyades Vext the dim sea: I am become a name; For always roaming with a hungry heart Much have I seen and known; cities of men And manners, climates, councils, governments, Myself not least, but honour’d of them all; And drunk delight of battle with my peers, Far on the ringing plains of windy Troy. I am a part of all that I have met; Yet all experience is an arch wherethro’ Gleams that untravell’d world whose margin fades For ever and forever when I move. How dull it is to pause, to make an end, To rust unburnish’d, not to shine in use! As tho’ to breathe were life! Life piled on life Were all too little, and of one to me Little remains: but every hour is saved From that eternal silence, something more, A bringer of new things; and vile it were For some three suns to store and hoard myself, And this gray spirit yearning in desire To follow knowledge like a sinking star, Beyond the utmost bound of human thought. This is my son, mine own Telemachus, To whom I leave the sceptre and the isle,— Well-loved of me, discerning to fulfil This labour, by slow prudence to make mild A rugged people, and thro’ soft degrees Subdue them to the useful and the good. Most blameless is he, centred in the sphere Of common duties, decent not to fail In offices of tenderness, and pay Meet adoration to my household gods, When I am gone. He works his work, I mine. There lies the port; the vessel puffs her sail: There gloom the dark, broad seas. My mariners, Souls that have toil’d, and wrought, and thought with me— That ever with a frolic welcome took The thunder and the sunshine, and opposed Free hearts, free foreheads—you and I are old; Old age hath yet his honour and his toil; Death closes all: but something ere the end, Some work of noble note, may yet be done, Not unbecoming men that strove with Gods. The lights begin to twinkle from the rocks: The long day wanes: the slow moon climbs: the deep Moans round with many voices. 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. It may be that the gulfs will wash us down: It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles, And see the great Achilles, whom we knew. Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and tho’ 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.

Day #25: Your favorite scene from your favorite movie I have two favorites. I love Wreck it Ralph’s last scene and in UP when Carl realizes Ellie added all their years together in the Adventure Book. Awwww and I also love when Ray appears on Evangeline’s side, it’s just sooooo sooooo beautiful. I think it’s one of the better scenes in Disney movies :’)
Up. One of my favorite movies and one of my favorite quotes.
Loved this Disney couple in Up! So sweet... and so in love.
My sweet parents......on to their new adventure!
Up was such a sweet and touching movie about true love!
Everyday. What have you truly done today to improve yourself? You laugh but I know truly who will not be laughing in the end of your next conquest. Oh honey pls don't pull that higher than mighty shit on me. You can't fool me. You truly earned your bitch status when you got nasty with the woman who tried to help. Did u really think God would be your accomplice in your condescending abuse of the NARCs behalf? just bc you post a few Jesus quotes? Get over yourself already.

You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks, or even months over-anaylzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could've, would've happened... or you can leave the pieces on the floor and move the fuck on. #Quote #Life
