For What We Have

The sea always filled her with longing, though for what she was never sure.  ~ Cornelia Funke

There is a space between man's imagination and man's attainment that may only be traversed by his longing.  ~Khalil Gibran

We look before and after,
And pine for what is not;
Our sincerest laughter
With some pain is fraught;
Our sweetest songs are those that tell
Of saddest thought.   ~ Percy Bysshe Shelley

We would give anything for what we have.  ~Tony Hoagland
