Final Quote

A final quote from the Hyperion series-

"But this is human life: the war, the deeds,
The disappointment, the anxiety,
Imagination's struggles, far and nigh,
All human; bearing in themselves this good,
That they are still air, the subtle food,
To make us feel existence, and to show
How quiet death is. Where soil is men grow,
Whether to weeds or to flowers; but for me,
There is no depth to strike in..."

(This might be some Keats, Simmons tends to draw from others)
