There is pleasure in the pathless woods,/There is a rapture on the lonely shore,/There is society, where none intrudes,/By the deep sea, and music in its roar:/I love not man the less, but Nature more,/From these our interviews, in which I steal/From all I may be, or have been before,/To mingle with the Universe, and feel/What I can ne'er express, yet cannot all conceal. Lord Byron
