Heights by great men reached and kept
were not obtained by sudden flight,
but they, while their companions slept,
were toiling upward in the night.

(Mostly) Wordless Wednesday

Talk not of wasted affection, affection never was wasted,
If it enrich not the heart of another, its waters, returning
Back to their springs, like the rain, shall fill them full of refreshment;
That which the fountain sends forth returns again to the fountain.
