Antarctica

  The ice was here, the ice was there, 
  The ice was all around: 
  It cracked and growled, and roared and howled, 
  Like noises in a swound. 
   - COLERIDGE.

  And the deed of high endeavour 
    Was no more to the favoured few. 
  But brain and heart were the measure 
    Of what every man might do. 
   - RENNELL RODD.

BY SIR J. M. BARRIE, BART.

                ...Yet I argue not 
  Against Heaven's hand or will, nor bate a jot 
  Of heart or hope; but still bear up and steer 
  Right onward. 
   - MILTON.

  By mutual confidence and mutual aid 
  Great deeds are done and great discoveries made. 
   - ANON.

  Do ye, by star-eyed Science led, explore 
  Each lonely ocean, each untrodden shore.

                     Come what may 
  Time and the hour runs through the darkest day. 
   - SHAKESPEARE.
