    We can make our lives sublines, and departing, leave behind us footprints on the sands of time. A good message (Report) Reply

    The paradox of the eternal existentialist. Eternity is forever, but life is but a moment. Live in the moment, for it does indeed matter. Wonderful piece of writing, its longevity proving its own assertion that art is long indeed. (Report) Reply

    Lives of great men all remind us
    We can make our lives sublime,
    And, departing, leave behind us
    Footprints on the sands of time;
