Poem of the day
by Dante Gabriel Rossetti
LADY, in thy proud eyes

As if the spirit we know through them
Were daunted with rebuke

Lady, in thy lifted face

Read complete poem
When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it - always.
