We prefer deep reflections on Philosophy, Shakespearean Sonnets, and tender musings along the lines of:
LXX That thou art blam'd shall not be thy defect, For slander's mark was ever yet the fair; The ornament of beauty is suspect, A crow that flies in heaven's sweetest air. So thou be good, slander doth but approve Thy worth the greater being woo'd of time; For canker vice the sweetest buds doth love, And thou present'st a pure unstained prime. Thou hast passed by the ambush of young days Either not assail'd, or victor being charg'd; Yet this thy praise cannot be so thy praise, To tie up envy, evermore enlarg'd, If some suspect of ill mask'd not thy show, Then thou alone kingdoms of hearts shouldst owe. --William Shakespeare
Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler. --Albert Einstein

If it be the wish of Him in whom all things flourish that my life continue for a few years, I hope to write of her (Beatrice) that which has never been written of any lady. -Dante on his inspiration for The Divine Comedy
