"All my life long

I have beheld with most respect the man

Who knew himself, and knew the ways before him ;

And from amongst them chose considerately,

With a clear foresight,-not a blindfold courage;

And, having chosen, with a steadfast mind

Pursued his purposes."- TAYLOR, Philip Van Artevelde.
