From Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809–1892), Poet Laureate of the United Kingdom, “Oenone”, st. 14 (1832):
Self-reverence, self-knowledge, self-control,
These three alone lead life to sovereign power.
Yet not for power (power of herself
Would come uncall’d for) but to live by law,
Acting the law we live by without fear;
And, because right is right, to follow right
Were wisdom in the scorn of consequence.
