To quote William Wordsworth:

    While watching "A River Runs Through It" yesterday, this famous poem reminds us all:

     "Though nothing can bring back
the hour

      Of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower,

     We will grieve not, rather find

    Strength in what remains behind,

     In the primal sympathy

    Which having been must ever be,

   In the soothing thoughts that spring

    Out of human suffering,

   In the faith that looks through death,

   In years that bring the philosophic mind."

   from William Wordsworth's "Ode: Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood."   We all need a little Wordsworth in our lives right now.
