Whats your favorite poem quote?

Whats you favorite poem quote?
This is mine

Robert Frost
The Road Not Taken

"I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."

I never saw a purple cow,
I never hope to see one,
but I can tell you anyhow,
I'd rather see than be one.

We real cool. We
Left school. We

Lurk late. We
Strike straight. We

Sing sin. We
Thin gin. We

Jazz June. We
Die soon.

And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep

and

I'd like to go by climbing a birch tree
And climb black branches up a snow-white trunk
Toward heaven, till the tree could bear no more,
But dipped its top and set me down again.
That would be good both going and coming back.
One could do worse than be a swinger of birches

the last stanza of John Masefield's Sea-Fever:

"I must down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over."

You do know her sequel poem, right? The story goes that she was an aspiring poet and not getting much noteriaty when she penned that poem. Because it was so cute, she became "well known" overnight. However, for obvious reasons, that was NOT the poem she wanted to be known for. After a few years, she penned a sequel poem.

Ah, yes, I wrote the Purple Cow
And now I'm sad I wrote it
But I can tell you anyhow
I'll kill you if you quote it

For....the first one that comes to mind would be the last stanza of Tennyson's Charge of the Light Brigade.

When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
All the world wondered.
Honor the charge they made,
Honor the Light Brigade,
Noble six hundred.
