There are two ways of being happy: We must either diminish our wants or augment our means—either may do—the result is the same and it is for each man to decide for himself and to do that which happens to be easier.Benjamin Franklin
- The world's great day is growing late,
Yet strange these fields that we have planted
So long with crops of love and hate.
- One Foot in Eden (1972)
- Long time he lay upon the sunny hill,
To his father's house below securely bound.
- Childhood (1983)
- They do not live in the world,
Are not in time and space.
From birth to death hurled
No word do they have, not one
To plant a foot upon,
Were never in any place.
- The Animals (1983)
- I have observed in foolish awe
The dateless mid-days of the law
And seen indifferent justice done
By everyone on everyone.
- The Brothers (1983)
