Matthew Arnold Quote

We cannot kindle when we will

The fire which in the heart resides,

The spirit bloweth and is still,

In mystery our soul abides;

But tasks in hours or insight will’d

Can be through hours of gloom fulfill’d

From Luke 24:30-32:  [On the road to Emmaus] “When He was at the table with them, He took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them.  Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized Him; and He vanished from their sight.  They said to each other, ‘Were not our hearts burning within us while He was talking to us on the road, while He was opening the scriptures to us?'”
