I count that soul exceeding small
That lives alone by book and creed, --
A soul that has not learned to read.

Lives for the meanest mortal known.

All honor to him who shall win the prize,'
The world has cried for a thousand years;
But to him who tries and fails and dies,
I give great honor and glory and tears.
K

Us feel that we have grasp'd an immortality.
