Where Headed???

WH Auden in his translation of Dag Hammerskjoeld’s  ‘Markings’-

He was a member of the crew on Colombus’s Caravel, yet he kept wondering whether he would return in time to take over the old shoe makers job.

And this is Emerson on Daniel Webster’s ambition to become President –

He was a great man with a small ambition.

And  Tennyson at his grandest –

To strive, to seek, to find and not to yeild.
