To those who have looked on the sea.

For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.

All in the dark we grope along,
And if we go amiss
We learn at least which path is wrong,
And there is gain in this.

By only running right;
We have to tread the mountain's base
Before we reach its height.
- Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Whatever your work and whatever its worth,
No matter how strong or clever,
Some one will sneer if you pause to hear,
And scoff at your best endeavor.
For the target art has a broad expanse,
And wherever you chance to hit it,
Though close be your aim to the bull's-eye fame,
There are those who will never admit it.
- Ella Wheeler Wilcox
