Sweet love, renew thy force; be it not said
Thy edge should blunter be than appetite,
Which but to-day by feeding is allay\'d,
To-morrow sharpened in his former might:
So, love, be thou, although to-day thou fill
Thy hungry eyes, even till they wink with fulness,
To-morrow see again, and do not kill
The spirit of love, with a perpetual dulness.
Let this sad interim like the ocean be
Which parts the shore, where two contracted new
Come daily to the banks, that when they see
Return of love, more blest may be the view;
Or call it winter, which being full of care,
Makes summer\'s welcome, thrice more wished, more rare.
Life without industry is guilt, and industry without art is
The beauty of life, is that you don\'t have to be modernly beautiful to live it.
- C.S. Lewis, In Beauty

doesn\'t have to take the civil service examination.
