Peaks of Life
from Prometheus Unbound
by Percy Bysshe Shelley

 
To suffer woes which Hope thinks infinite;
To forgive wrongs darker than death or light;
To defy Power, which seems omnipotent;
To love, and bear; to hope till Hope creates
From its own wreck the thing it contemplates;
Neither to change, nor falter, nor repent'
This, like they glory, Titan, is to be
Good, great and joyous, beautiful and free;
This is alone Life, Joy, Empire and Victory.
