"“Have you suffered ..." Quote of Robert William Service

“Have you suffered, starved and triumphed, grovelled down, yet grasped at glory, Grown bigger in the bigness of the whole? Done things just for the doing, letting babblers tell the story, Seeing through the nice veneer the naked soul? Have you seen God in His splendours, heard the text that nature renders? (Youll never hear it in the family pew.) The simple things, the true things, the silent men who do things– Then listen to the wild–its calling you.”
