“Remember this if you are still in the water:  There is no help in a wave when you are coming back to shore tired out.  It will be going your way.  For a moment you will be lifted up with hope on the crest of it.  But it carries nothing with it.  It will go forward itself, but leave you to the mercy of the current.  It is a hateful delusion when you are desperate for solid ground beneath your feet.”  ~Robert Frost, in The Letters of Robert Frost to Louis Untermeyer, ©1963
