(I had my History of Poetry final today, and this is how I felt. LOL)

"To the Virgins Make Much Ado?"
Nothing but Shakespeare and Emerson too,
Colridge and Shelley; Housman and Poe,
"Of Life in a Raven?" Was that Thoreau?

Donne, Milton, Virgil, "Batter my Knee!"
Tells of Beelzebub, and his voyage at sea!
No wait that's Aeneas! and Paradise lost,
"Tiger and Ice." Was that Blake or Frost?

Good God! I'm lost!

 "We prefer to do things comfortably" said the Controller.
"But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin."
"In fact," said Mustapha Mond, "you're claiming the right to be unhappy."
"Alright then," said the Savage defiantly, "I'm claiming the right to be unhappy." -Aldous Huxley "Brave New World"

Thank you, you three. I made an 'A' actually... amazingly enough. I think the teacher needs his head examined... but thanks for the response!
