A Quote by Alfred, Lord TENNYSON on death, desires, fatherhood, foolishness, and youth

Do we indeed desire the dead Should still be near us at our side ? Is there no baseness we would hide ? No inner vileness that we dread ? How many a father have I seen A sober man, among his boys Whose youth was full of foolish noise.

Lord Alfred Tennyson (1809 - 1892)
