Think about it...he's right, of course!
Today's quote is from Mark Helprin's version of Swan Lake (beautifully illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg). I was reading it for fun last night, and got hit over the head with this one...had to stop and read it a few more times...beautiful!
“This was long ago, and in many ways the time was so different that you would hardly know it, except in your heart—for your heart is quick and right to tell you that all things that matter are more or less the same as they have been and will be, and that however young you are, however happy you may be, somehow you know them, somehow you know sadness; somehow, you have been there.” (Helprin, Mark. Swan Lake. p.3)
Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto,
Sicut Erat in Principo, et Nunc, et Semper, et in Saecula Saeculorum.Amen. Fiat.
