[And It All Came To Pass, All That She Had Hoped, But It Did Not Fill Her With Rapture Nor Carry Her Away With The Power Or The Fervor She Had Expected. She Had Imagined It All Different, And Had Imagined Herself Different, Too. In Dreams And Poems Everything Had Been, As It Were, Beyond The Sea; The Haze Of Distance Had Mysteriously Veiled All The Restless Mass Of Details And Had Thrown Out The Large Lines In Bold Relief, While The Silence Of Distance Had Lent Its Spirit Of Enchantment. It Had Been Easy Then To Feel The Beauty; But Now That She Was In The Midst Of It All, When Every Little Feature Stood Out And Spoke Boldly With The Manifold Voices Of Reality, And Beauty Was Shattered As Light In A Prism, She Could Not Gather The Rays Together Again, Could Not Put The Picture Back Beyond The Sea. Despondently She Was Obliged To Admit To Herself That She Felt Poor, Surrounded By Riches That She Could Not Make Her Own.]

Robert W Lebling Quotes

"[…] One night, five men from Nuweiba were travelling past the mountain, and one of them fell behind, and was separated from his companions.
