Quote by Alfred Lord Tennyson, Ulysses fr

Come, my friends, 'T is not too late to seek a newer world. Push off, and sitting well in order smite The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths Of all the western stars, until I die. It may be that the gulfs will wash us down: It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles, And see the great Achilles, whom we knew. Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho' 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.

Come, my friends, 'T is not too late to seek a newer world.


This quote, taken from Tennyson's Ulysses, expresses a call to action and a sense of adventure. Ulysses encourages his friends to embark on a new journey, even though they may face challenges along the way. He acknowledges their limitations as they age, but emphasizes the strength of their will to continue striving, seeking, and not giving up. It serves as a reminder that, despite the passage of time and the hardships faced, there is still purpose and courage within the human spirit to explore and pursue greatness.
