. 'All the world 's a stage, and all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts.'
William Shakespeare, As You Like it Act 2, Scene 7)
"We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time."
― T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets
"Death will come when thou art dead,
Soon, too soon--
Sleep will come when thou art fled;
Of neither would I ask the boon
I ask of the beloved Night--
Come soon, soon!"
P B Shelley
"There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more"
George Gordon Byron
"Tears, idle tears, I know not what they mean,
Tears from the depths of some devine despair
Rise in the heart, and gather to the eyes,
In looking on the happy autumn fields,
And thinking of the days that are no more."
