And the difficultest job a man can do,Is to come it brave and meek with thirty bob a week,And feel that that's the proper thing for you.It's a naked child against a hungry wolf;It's playing bowls upon a splitting wreck;It's walking on a string across a gulfWith millstones fore-and-aft about your neck;But the thing is daily done by many and many a one.And we fall, face forward, fighting, on the deck.john davidson

The Rhapsody is not a composition at all.

That's a daunting thing to realize but true.dean r. koontz
