Here dead we lie
Because we did not choose
To live and shame the land
From which we were sprung.

Life, to be sure,
Is nothing much to lose.
But young men think it is,
And we were young.

A.E. HOUSMAN

And malt does more than Milton can
To justify God’s ways to man.
Terence, this is stupid stuff by A.E. Housman (via wellconstructedsentences)

Rebecca, 1940.
