Quote of the Day (A. E. Housman, on How ‘Today I Shall Be Strong’)

“Today I shall be strong,
No more shall yield to wrong,
    Shall squander life no more;
Days lost, I know not how,
I shall retrieve them now;
Now I shall keep the vow
    I never kept before.”—English poet and classical scholar A. E. Housman (1859-1936), “How Clear, How Lovely Bright,” in More Poems (1936)
