A little nonsense now and then...

Madame de Pompadour
3 June

And, when he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of Heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.

- W.S.

"In a fierce hurricane, the thickest oak
trees with the deepest roots can be torn from the
ground and tossed away, where some smalller, slender
trees can survive even the strongest hurricanes. The
difference is when the hurricane comes the oak tree
stiffens and tries to endure the force of the
hurricane, while the slender tree learns to bend with
the wind. The slender tree bends with no fear that it
will break, and shifts back when the hurricane has
passed on its own."


Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O, no! it is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

- W.S.

I fell for you like a child;
Oh, but the fire went wild.

- Johnny Cash

"Only passions, great passions, can elevate the soul to great things."
- Denis Diderot
