No, Time, thou shalt not boast that I do change:
Thy pyramids built up with newer might
To me are nothing novel, nothing strange;
They are but dressings of a former sight.
Our dates are brief, and therefore we admire
What thou dost foist upon us that is old;
And rather make them born to our desire
Than think that we before have heard them told.
Thy registers and thee I both defy,
Not wondering at the present nor the past,
For thy records and what we see doth lie,
Made more or less by thy continual haste.
This I do vow and this shall ever be;
I will be true despite thy scythe and thee.
Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by
understanding. --Albert Einstein
O, thou art fairer than the evening\'s air
Clad in the beauty of a thousand stars.
There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, \'Thy will be done,\' and those to whom God says, \'All right, then, have
it your way.\'
C. S. Lewis
