’tis not too latePosted: October 22, 2012 Filed under: Society, Spirituality Leave a comment
I recently finished an online course on Radical Hope in Hard Times. In the wrap-up blog, our instructor, Jane, included a photo of someone carrying a sign that said “another world is possible.” That made me think of Tennyson. Whatever the result of the presidential election, we must maintain our radical hope.
Come, my friends,
’Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
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.
— Tennyson, “Ulysses”
