Six Lines Say It All.

These six lines from Tennyson manage to speak more to me then any other written work.  It has been my favorite since I first read it and I often repeat it in my head throughout the day.

The Eagle

He clasps the crag with crooked hands; 
Close to the sun in lonely lands, 
Ringed with the azure world, he stands. 

The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls; 
He watches from his mountain walls, 
And like a thunderbolt he falls.
