Cool History of the English alphabet

   

"Whoever undertakes to set himself up as judge in
the field of truth and knowledge is shipwrecked
by the laughter of the Gods."

Albert Einstein

"Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only
be attained through understanding."

Albert Einstein

Destined for Dust

 

Destined for dust,

the aroma of must imagines a million quests,

a gust of air,

a deluge to spare,

I breathe in the fog of mediocrity,

the smog of smug alacrity -

Ah, Life!

That I am smothered by insanity and greed,

snuffed out like a flame too hot to tame,

yet I smolder and rupture into the rapture of an inferno.

Shall I be ashes to ashes, dust to dust? 

A particle of light dares me to trust

in the invisible eternity of the one moment here and now

I shall forever be.

Ah Life!  My true identity 

inconspicuous amidst the dust.

                                               The Rose of Sharon

FAVORITE QUOTES:
 

 
Pondering Heaven and hell...
Heaven is the world of truth.  Hell is the world of lies.
