No more be griev\'d at that which thou hast done:
Roses have thorns, and silver fountains mud:
Clouds and eclipses stain both moon and sun,
And loathsome canker lives in sweetest bud.
All men make faults, and even I in this,
Authorizing thy trespass with compare,
Myself corrupting, salving thy amiss,
Excusing thy sins more than thy sins are;
For to thy sensual fault I bring in sense,--
Thy adverse party is thy advocate,--
And \'gainst myself a lawful plea commence:
Such civil war is in my love and hate,
That I an accessary needs must be,
To that sweet thief which sourly robs from me.
It ends not with a bang, but a whimper.
T. S. Eliot
Double, no triple, our troubles and we\'d still be better off than any
other people on earth. It is time that we recognized that ours was, in
truth, a noble cause.
Art flourishes where there is a sense of adventure.
Alfred North Whitehead
