Thoughts for this Time

7 Nov

“Men must endure
Their going hence, even as their coming hither:
Ripeness is all. Come on.”

“The weight of this sad time we must obey;
Speak what we feel, not what we ought to say.
The oldest hath borne most. We that are young
Will never see so much, nor live so long.”                       [King Lear 5.2.9-11; 5.3.323-26]
