The former post was off topic and was removed as it was a violation of our
Great Books spirit.

Please respect that these are Great Books sites. We far prefer
discussions along the following
O thou, my lovely boy, who in thy power
Dost hold Time\'s fickle glass, his fickle hour;
Who hast by waning grown, and therein show\'st
Thy lovers withering, as thy sweet self grow\'st.
If Nature, sovereign mistress over wrack,
As thou goest onwards, still will pluck thee back,
She keeps thee to this purpose, that her skill
May time disgrace and wretched minutes kill.
Yet fear her, O thou minion of her pleasure!
She may detain, but not still keep, her treasure:
Her audit (though delayed) answered must be,
And her quietus is to render thee.
Mr Gorbachev, tear down this wall!
<P>100 per cent of us die, and the percentage cannot be increased.
- C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory, In Death<P><P><pre>
My glass shall not persuade me I am old,
So long as youth and thou are of one date;
But when in thee time\'s furrows I behold,
Then look I death my days should expiate.
For all that beauty that doth cover thee,
Is but the seemly raiment of my heart,
Which in thy breast doth live, as thine in me:
How can I then be elder than thou art?
O! therefore love, be of thyself so wary
As I, not for myself, but for thee will;
Bearing thy heart, which I will keep so chary
As tender nurse her babe from faring ill.
Presume not on th;heart when mine is slain,
Thou gav\'st me thine not to give back again.
