Quote of the Week- W.H. Auden

by - Sunday, February 10, 2013

 “Beloved, we are always in the wrong,
Handling so clumsily our stupid lives,
Suffering too little or too long,
Too careful even in our selfish loves:
The decorative manias we obey
Die in grimaces round us every day,
Yet through their tohu-bohu comes a voice
Which utters an absurd command - Rejoice. ”

-W.H. Auden, The Collected Poetry of W.H. Auden
