About Me

Vita Brevis, Ars Longa

But Still I'm troubled by one thing: Time is short and art is long. I'd think you'd let yourself be taught. Associate yourself with a poet and let him gallop through all fields of thought and heap all noble qualities on your honored head: The lions courage, the stags speed, the fiery Italian blood, the Normans fortitude. ~~~ Johann W. von Goethe/FAUST

 

Rubaiyat

LXVI

I sent my Soul through the Invisible,

Some letter of that After-life to spell:

And by and by my Soul return'd to me,

And answer'd "I Myself am Heav'n and Hell

 

LXVII

Heav'n but the Vision of fulfill'd Desire,

And Hell the Shadow of a Soul on fire,

Cast on the Darkness into which Ourselves,

So late emerg'd from, shall so soon expire."
