This is a light I started a few years ago and was not sure if I liked it or not this week I decided to finish things I had abandoned so I can have room to start new things.
“Self-reverence, self-knowledge, self-control. These three alone lead to sovereign power.”

About Alfred Tennyson
Alfred Tennyson, one of the most admired English poets of his time, was best known for his romantic poem, “The Lady of Shalott,” and for “In Memoriam A.H.H.,” a requiem for a close friend. He was born in Lincolnshire in 1809. When he was 17, he joined forces with two of his brothers to publish a book of poetry. His first solo work followed three years later. He became the first English writer raised to the peerage when Queen Victoria, an ardent admirer, made him a baron. He died in 1892.
