"Come my friends, 'tis not to late to seek a newer world... for my purpose holds to sail beyond the sunset and the baths of all the western stars until I die... Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho' we are not now that great strength which once moved earth and haven, 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, from "Ulysses"

Happy International Pi Day!!!  It is one of my most favorite days.  :D

"a soul... with its seven faculties: fire, earth, water, air, mist, flowers, and southerly wind."

"While I viewed these mountains I felt a secret pleasure in finding myself so near the head of the heretofore conceived boundless Missouri; but when I reflected on the difficulties which this snowey barrier would most probably throw in my way to the Pacific, and the sufferings and hardships of myself and party in thim, it in some measure counterbalanced the joy I had felt in the first moments in which I gazed on them; but as I have always considered it a crime to anticipate evils I will believe it a good and comfortable road untill I am compelled to believe differently."
- Captain Meriwether Lewis
