The brave man is not he who feels no fear,For that were stupid and irrational;But he, whose noble soul its fear subdues,And bravely dares the danger nature shrinks from.
We have come by curious waysTo the Light that holds the days;We have sought in haunts of fearFor that all-enfolding sphere:And lo! it was not far, but near.We have found, O foolish-fond,The shore that has no shore beyond.Deep in every heart it liesWith its untranscended skies;For what heaven should bend aboveHearts that own the heaven of love?Alfred Noyes
