Quoting Time II: Advice, poetry, slogan and prose.

To love one's self is the beggining of a life-long romance.

Oscar Wilde.

Some Saian mountaineer
Struts today with my shield.
I threw it down a bush and ran
When the fighting got hot.
Life seemed somehow more precious;
It was a beatiful shield.
To hell with it!
I know where I can find another
Exactly like it, just as round.

Archilochus of Paros.

Potius mori quam foedari.

Templar slogan.

His soul swooned slowly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the living and the dead.

From The Dead, by James Joyce.

Quoting Time: Street-wisdom, poetry and prose.

The shit hit the fan.

Popular saying.

there's no chance
at all:
we are all trapped
by a singular

nobody ever finds
no one.

the city dumps fill
the junkyards fill
the madhouses fill
the hospitals fill
the greveyards fill

nothing else

alone with everybody (fragment), by Charles Bukowski.

Rock n' Roll. Deal with it.
