Vol. IV. The Nineteenth Century: Wordsworth to Rossetti
Extracts from Dipsychus: Isolation
By Arthur Hugh Clough (1819–1861)
WHERE are the great, whom thou would’st wish to praise thee?
Where are the pure, whom thou would’st choose to love thee!
Where are the brave, to stand supreme above thee,
Whose high commands would cheer, whose chidings raise thee?
  Seek, seeker, in thyself; submit to find        5
  In the stones, bread, and life in the blank mind.
