A Favor Done To Men Of Knowledge and Virtue!


A favor which is done to men of knowledge and virtue
shall appear like letters written on stone – but for, the
favor offered to persons who are not kind in their heart
is equivalent to the letters written on flowing water front!

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
