A Rage to Live


“Wise wretch! With pleasure too refined to please,
With too much spirit to be e’er at ease,
With too much quickness ever to be taught;
With too much thinking to have common thought,
You purchase pain with all that joy can give,
And die of nothing but a rage to live . . .”

Alexander Pope
