Whilst I alone did call upon thy aid,
My verse alone had all thy gentle grace;
But now my gracious numbers are decay\'d,
And my sick Muse doth give an other place.
I grant, sweet love, thy lovely argument
Deserves the travail of a worthier pen;
Yet what of thee thy poet doth invent
He robs thee of, and pays it thee again.
He lends thee virtue, and he stole that word
From thy behaviour; beauty doth he give,
And found it in thy cheek: he can afford
No praise to thee, but what in thee doth live.
Then thank him not for that which he doth say,
Since what he owes thee, thou thyself dost pay.
April is the cruellest month.
T. S. Eliot
We must reject the idea that every time a law\'s broken, society is guilty
rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept
that each individual is accountable for his actions.
It is best, it seems to me, to separate one\'s inner striving from one\'s
trade as far as possible. It is not good when one\'s daily break is tied to
God\'s special blessing. -- Albert Einstein
