If the dull substance of my flesh were thought,
Injurious distance should not stop my way;
For then despite of space I would be brought,
From limits far remote where thou dost stay.
No matter then although my foot did stand
Upon the farthest earth removed from thee;
For nimble thought can jump both sea and land
As soon as think the place where he would be.
But ah! thought kills me that I am not thought,
To leap large lengths of miles when thou art gone,
But that so much of earth and water wrought
I must attend time's leisure with my moan,
Receiving nought by elements so slow
But heavy tears, badges of either's woe.

The Forsyte Saga

Jon Forsyte: Except for Art, and that's out of the question for me, it [farming] seems the only sort of life that doesn't hurt anyone ... well most jobs you do you're competing with other people; trying to beat them; do them down.
Jolyon Forsyte: Hehe, ever heard farmers haggling at markets
Jon: Yes Dad but you don't have to be dishonest or grasping.
