It little profits that an idle king, By this still hearth, among these barren crags, Matched with an aged wife, I mete and dole unequal laws (1-3)
I cannot rest from travel; I will drink Life to the lees (6-7)
Yet all experience is an arch wherethrough Gleams that untravelled world whose margin fades Forever and forever when I move (19-21)
Old Age Quotes
Matched with an aged wife (3)
For always roaming with a hungry heart Much have I seen and known – cities of men And manners, climates, councils, governments (12-14)
