And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.

    To quote from Whitman, "O me! O life!... of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless... of cities filled…
