lines:<P> Beauty is truth, truth is beauty, -that is all
Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.
John Keats, Ode on a Grecian Urn, 1819
I have wondered at times what the Ten Commandments would have looked like
if Moses had run them through the US Congress.
That you were once unkind befriends me now,
And for that sorrow, which I then did feel,
Needs must I under my transgression bow,
Unless my nerves were brass or hammer\'d steel.
For if you were by my unkindness shaken,
As I by yours, you\'ve pass\'d a hell of time;
And I, a tyrant, have no leisure taken
To weigh how once I suffer\'d in your crime.
O! that our night of woe might have remember\'d
My deepest sense, how hard true sorrow hits,
And soon to you, as you to me, then tender\'d
The humble salve, which wounded bosoms fits!
But that your trespass now becomes a fee;
Mine ransoms yours, and yours must ransom me.
My philosophy of life is that if we make up our mind what we are going to
make of our lives, then work hard toward that goal, we never lose -
somehow we win out.
