1809 - 1892

A Quote by Alfred, Lord TENNYSON on blindness, day, dreams, earth, friendship, god, gold, life, men, prayer, and world

. . . More things are wrought by prayer Than this world dreams of. Wherefore let thy voice Rise like a fountain for me night and day. For what are men better than sheeps or goats That nourish a blind life within the brain, If, knowing God, they lift not hands of prayer Not only for themselves but for those who call them friend? For so this whole round earth is every way Bound by gold chains about the feet of God.
