What refuge is there…

“What refuge is there for the victim
who is oppressed with the feeling
that there are a thousand new books
he ought to read,
while life is only long enough
for him to attempt to read a hundred?”

       – Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

  1. Somewhere out there in some language there must be a word to describe the feeling described in this poem. Beautiful 🙂
