I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements gray,
I hear it in the deep heart's core.

[W.B. Yeats]

And yet, he was still a man, for he was not without his human flaws, his penchant for women, drugs, and rebellion.

The next four pages detail his simple and yet perplexing life as part of the story of four young men who searched for a better world.
