From unremembered times

Don't tell me to face facts. If men had faced facts there would have been no Straits recalling the voyage of Magellan; no continent that bears Vespucci's name; no impossible flights to unreachable planets. Don't tell me to face facts: face facts and give way before you test the bridge that may easily bear your weight and more face facts and live boxed in a space restrictive as the frames of family portraits: facts allied to limitations of moon and tide; facts, that from unremembered times have often lied.
