The louder he talked of his honour, the faster we counted our spoons. --EmersonA play should give you something to think about. When I see a play and understand it the first time, then I know it can\'t
T. S. Eliot
All art is an individual\'s expression of a culture. Cultures
differ, so art looks different.
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.
