The former post was off topic and was removed as it was a violation of our
Great Books spirit.
These forums are being phased out & replaced. Join us at our new

Please respect that these are Great Books sites. We far prefer
discussions along the following
When thou shalt be dispos\'d to set me light,
And place my merit in the eye of scorn,
Upon thy side, against myself I\'ll fight,
And prove thee virtuous, though thou art forsworn.
With mine own weakness, being best acquainted,
Upon thy part I can set down a story
Of faults conceal\'d, wherein I am attainted;
That thou in losing me shalt win much glory:
And I by this will be a gainer too;
For bending all my loving thoughts on thee,
The injuries that to myself I do,
Doing thee vantage, double-vantage me.
Such is my love, to thee I so belong,
That for thy right, myself will bear all wrong.
My contribution to the world is my ability to draw. I will draw as
much as I can for as many people as I can for as long as I can. Drawing is
still basically the same as it has been since prehistoric times. It brings
together man and the world. It lives through magic.
Governments tend not to solve problems, only to rearrange them.
We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place
for the first time.
