Farewell! thou art too dear for my possessing,
And like enough thou know\'st thy estimate,
The charter of thy worth gives thee releasing;
My bonds in thee are all determinate.
For how do I hold thee but by thy granting?
And for that riches where is my deserving?
The cause of this fair gift in me is wanting,
And so my patent back again is swerving.
Thy self thou gav\'st, thy own worth then not knowing,
Or me to whom thou gav\'st it, else mistaking;
So thy great gift, upon misprision growing,
Comes home again, on better judgement making.
Thus have I had thee, as a dream doth flatter,
In sleep a king, but waking no such matter.
In an artist\'s life, death is perhaps not the most difficult
Vincent Van Gogh
Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art . . . it has no survival value; rather is one of those things that
value to survival.
- C.S. Lewis, In Friendship
Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned
in school. --Albert Einstein
