O! how I faint when I of you do write,
Knowing a better spirit doth use your name,
And in the praise thereof spends all his might,
To make me tongue-tied speaking of your fame!
But since your worth--wide as the ocean is,--
The humble as the proudest sail doth bear,
My saucy bark, inferior far to his,
On your broad main doth wilfully appear.
Your shallowest help will hold me up afloat,
Whilst he upon your soundless deep doth ride;
Or, being wrack\'d, I am a worthless boat,
He of tall building, and of goodly pride:
Then if he thrive and I be cast away,
The worst was this,--my love was my decay.
The most terrifying words in the English langauge are: I\'m from the
government and I\'m here to help.
Time hasn\'t stopped for any troubles, heartaches, or any other malfunctions of this world, so please don\'t tell me it will
stop for you.
- C.S. Lewis, In Time
Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art . . . it has no survival value; rather is one of those things that
value to survival.
