Happiness always goes with misery. You cannot obtain what you are longing for until you have experienced some miserable processes.

for each moment of ecstasy
too many of despair
far and in between
happiness does repair
emotions of nature rare
are interred with
memories miserly and spare
alas her understanding of relativity apt but too pessimistic in light of her biography her poetry is consistent and sad
