On First Looking into Chapman's Homer
Much have I travell'd in the realms of gold, 
And many goodly states and kingdoms seen; 
Round many western islands have I been 
Which bards in fealty to Apollo hold. 
Oft of one wide expanse had I been told 
That deep-brow'd Homer ruled as his demesne; 
Yet did I never breathe its pure serene 
Till I heard Chapman speak out loud and bold: 
Then felt I like some watcher of the skies 
When a new planet swims into his ken; 
Or like stout Cortez when with eagle eyes 
He star'd at the Pacific—and all his men 
Look'd at each other with a wild surmise— 
Silent, upon a peak in Darien. 
 
I especially love these lines:  
Then felt I like some watcher of the skies 
When a new planet swims into his ken;

I never met a rich man who was happy, but I have only very occasionally met a poor man who did not want to become a rich man.

From: http://www.rockol.it/testi/85661227/u2-rejoice

It's falling, it's falling
And outside  buildings
Are tumbling down
And inside a child on the ground
Says he'll do it again
And what am I to do?
What in the world am I to say?
There's nothing else to do
He says he'll change the world someday
I rejoice
This morning I fell out of bed
When I woke up to what he has said
Everything's it's crazy
But I'm too lazy to lie
And what am I to do?
Just tell me what am I supposed to say?
I can't change the world
But I can change the world in me
If I rejoice, rejoice
And what am I to do?
Just tell me what am I supposed to say?
I can't change the world
But I can change the world in me
If I rejoice
I don't know what to change
Rejoice, Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice, rejoice, rejoice.
