Ulysses – Lord Alfred Tennyson


This is a great poem by Lord Alfred Tennyson. I had not seen it until today. Poetry is not one of my things. Usually.

In the world of advertising and innovation (that JRS and myself are part of) more thoughtful and creative prose is always welcome. I miss me some Alison.

Below is the poem and it doesn’t need a headline, it doesn’t need a fancy photo. It speaks for itself.

Though much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Ulysses - Lord Alfred Tennyson (1809-1892)
