Take this kiss upon the brow! And, in parting from you now, Thus much let me avow- You are not wrong, who deem That my days have been a dream; Yet if hope has flown away In a night, or in a day, In a vision, or in none, Is it therefore the less gone? All that we see or seem Is but a dream within a dream.
I stand amid the roar Of a surf-tormented shore, And I hold within my hand Grains of the golden sand- How few! yet how they creep Through my fingers to the deep, While I weep- while I weep! O God! can I not grasp Them with a tighter clasp? O God! can I not save One from the pitiless wave? Is all that we see or seem But a dream within a dream?
When will the members of the human race help to make this world into a better place? Because lately it seems to be getting worse as if it is under some kind of damned curse.
Most of what we hear these days is bad news It’s almost as if there’s nothing else to choose. The good we have all known belongs to the past and so the present or future is viewed as aghast.
The actions all people do give an indication of that regardless of any good ideological debate or chat. The transition of ideas and thoughts to actions or deeds is just like the sowing of a future crop by planting seeds.
If the seeds used are of a poor quality it will matter much even though more time is spent cultivating them by touch. That’s why it’s better to do things properly right from the start as time brooding over what could have been won’t help in part.
