Apt description – Alfred Tennyson’s Ulysses

“… I cannot rest from travel…

For always roaming with a hungry heart

Much have I seen and known…

I am a part of all that I have met…

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…

To follow knowledge like a sinking star,

Beyond the utmost bound of human thought…

Free hearts, free foreheads…

Some work of noble note, may yet be done…

Come, my friends,

‘T is 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…

To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”
