To suffer woes which Hope thinks infinite; To forgive wrongs darker than Death or Night ; To defy Power, which seems Omnipotent; To love, and bear; to hope, till Hope creates From its own wreck the thing it contemplates; Neither to change nor falter nor repent; This, like thy glory, Titan! is to be Good , great and joyous , beautiful and free ; This is alone Life ; Joy, Empire, and Victory !
