Please respect that these are Great Books sites. We far prefer
discussions along the following
Whilst I alone did call upon thy aid,
My verse alone had all thy gentle grace;
But now my gracious numbers are decay\'d,
And my sick Muse doth give an other place.
I grant, sweet love, thy lovely argument
Deserves the travail of a worthier pen;
Yet what of thee thy poet doth invent
He robs thee of, and pays it thee again.
He lends thee virtue, and he stole that word
From thy behaviour; beauty doth he give,
And found it in thy cheek: he can afford
No praise to thee, but what in thee doth live.
Then thank him not for that which he doth say,
Since what he owes thee, thou thyself dost pay.
The only way to have a friend is to be one. --Ralph Waldo Emerson<P><pre>
Then hate me when thou wilt; if ever, now;
Now, while the world is bent my deeds to cross,
Join with the spite of fortune, make me bow,
And do not drop in for an after-loss:
Ah! do not, when my heart hath \'scap\'d this sorrow,
Come in the rearward of a conquer\'d woe;
Give not a windy night a rainy morrow,
To linger out a purpos\'d overthrow.
If thou wilt leave me, do not leave me last,
When other petty griefs have done their spite,
But in the onset come: so shall I taste
At first the very worst of fortune\'s might;
And other strains of woe, which now seem woe,
Compar\'d with loss of thee, will not seem so.
<P><P>Where is all the knowledge we lost with information?
T. S. Eliot<P>
