Have we not all, amid life's petty strife, Some pure ideal of a noble life That once seemed possible?... - Adelaide Anne Procter Quotes

Quote:Have we not all, amid life's petty strife, Some pure ideal of a noble life That once seemed possible? Did we not hear The flutter of its wings, and feel it near, And just within our reach? It was. And yet We lost it in this daily jar and fret, And now live idle in a vague regret; But still our place is kept, and it will wait, Ready for us to fill it, soon or late. No star is ever lost we once have seen, We always may be what we might have been. - Adelaide Anne Procter Quotes
