    Sonnet 129
    by William Shakespeare


    The expense of spirit in a waste of shame
    Is lust in action: and till action, lust
    Is perjur'd, murderous, bloody, full of blame,
    Savage, extreme, rude, cruel, not to trust;
    Enjoy'd no sooner but despised straight;
    Past reason hunted; and no sooner had,
    Past reason hated, as a swallow'd bait,
    On purpose laid to make the taker mad:
    Mad in pursuit and in possession so;
    Had, having, and in quest, to have extreme;
    A bliss in proof,— and prov'd, a very woe;
    Before, a joy propos'd; behind a dream.

    All this the world well knows; yet none knows well
    To shun the heaven that leads men to this hell
    `
    'Cause you can't handle me...

    "[T]he spiritual disorder of our time, the civilizational crisis of which everybody so readily speaks, does not by any means have to be borne as an inevitable fate...on the contrary, everybody possesses the means of overcoming it in his own life...No one is obliged to take part in the spiritual crisis of a society; on the contrary, everyone is obliged to avoid this folly and live his life in order."
    --Eric Voegelin
