To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

I recently saw One Week, a film written and directed by Michael McGowan, starring Joshua Jackson. That movie inspired me to post this quote this week.

My favorite Tennyson poem is The Lady of Shalott, which I first heard in Kevin Sullivan's film adaptation of Anne of Green Gables.
