The Deserted Village": A Poem by Oliver Goldsmith | Owlcation

Our greatest glory consists not in never falling, but in rising every time we may fall.”   —   Oliver Goldsmith

(Rumor has it, I was in a production of “She Stoops to Conquer”, when I was a freshman in college.  I have very limited memories of it though, as I was going through some MAJOR pain, due to a slipped/torn disc.  So bad that the director gave me some of his neuralgia medication.  Yikes!  STRONG stuff!  I’m told that at one point in the scene I spaced out . . . big time, and jumped ahead a page . . . or two . . . or three.  And, the guy – a friend/ex-roommate – who was in the scene with me had to talk me back to where I should have been.  I also jumbled/reversed the order of two words in one line that I was delivering.  Fortunately, the guy played along, and repeated my line to me, with a questioning tone – and a smile – that allowed me to correct myself.  Everyone would’ve been better off if I’d just acted with the pain!  And, this whole incident was completely lost to me, until I ran into my friend at a college reunion 15 years ago!  The brain is a funny thing.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
