We cast away priceless time in dreams, born of imagination, fed upon illusion, and put to death by reality.
I love the name of honor, more than I fear death.
“The Night has a thousand eyes, And the Day but One
Yet the light of the bright world dies, with the dying sun.”
“The Mind has a thousand eyes, And the heart but one
Yet the light of a whole life dies, when Love is done.”
**Francis William Bourdillon
I wake up every morning at nine and grab for the morning paper. Then I look at the obituary page. If my name is not on it, I get up.
“I wish you to know that you have been the last dream of my soul.”
**Tale of Two Cities
