Not marble, nor the gilded monuments
Of princes, shall outlive this powerful rhyme;
But you shall shine more bright in these contents
Than unswept stone, besmear'd with sluttish time.
When wasteful war shall statues overturn,
And broils root out the work of masonry,
Nor Mars his sword, nor war's quick fire shall burn
The living record of your memory.
'Gainst death, and all-oblivious enmity
Shall you pace forth; your praise shall still find room
Even in the eyes of all posterity
That wear this world out to the ending doom.
So, till the judgment that yourself arise,
You live in this, and dwell in lovers' eyes.
A God. The God. One word can make all the difference in the world.
- C.S. Lewis, In ReligionAnd his heart was stirred, it felt a father's kindness: such an emotion as the possessor of beauty can
inspire in one who offered himself up in spirit to create beauty. -Thomas Mann, Death in Venice
There's only one way to have a happy marriage and as soon as I learn what
it is I'll get married again.
