Business today consists in persuading crowds.
T. S. Eliot
I know I'm not in government anymore. In fact I'm out of work.
Against my love shall be as I am now,
With Time's injurious hand crush'd and o'erworn;
When hours have drain'd his blood and fill'd his brow
With lines and wrinkles; when his youthful morn
Hath travell'd on to age's steepy night;
And all those beauties whereof now he's king
Are vanishing, or vanished out of sight,
Stealing away the treasure of his spring;
For such a time do I now fortify
Against confounding age's cruel knife,
That he shall never cut from memory
My sweet love's beauty, though my lover's life:
His beauty shall in these black lines be seen,
And they shall live, and he in them still green.
Beware when the great God lets loose a thinker on this planet. Then all things are at risk. It is as when a conflagration
has broken out in a great city, and no man knows what is safe, or where it will end.--Ralph Waldo Emerson
