"If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world."

The Hunt

The noble stag was pausing now
Upon the mountain's southern brow,
Where broad extended, far beneath,
The varied realms of fair Menteith,
With anxious eye he wandered o'er,
Mountain and meadow, moss and moor,
And pondered refuge from his toil,
By far Lochard and Aberfoyle,
But nearer was the copsewood grey,
That waved and wept on Loch Achray,
And mingled with the pine-trees blue,
On the bold cliffs of Benvenue.
Fresh vigor with the hope returned,
With flying foot the heath he spurned,
Held westward with unwearied race,
And left behind the panting chase.
