Deep in the man sits fast his fate
To mould his fortunes, mean or great:

The sportive sun, the gibbous moon,
The innumerable days.

Muffled and dumb like barefoot dervishes,
And marching single in an endless file,
Bring diadems and fagots in their hands.
The Bell
I love thy music, mellow bell,
I love thine iron chime,
To life or death, to heaven or hell,
Which calls the sons of Time.

I basically earn more then $18,000 a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 9 to 10 hours a week from home. I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it… HERE? SwagTo.com

If he would be alive I would tell him: a. If a worst is, that man knows, it is ridiculous to be scared of unknown. b. If a best is, that man knows, it is smart to be scared of unknown. The question is: ''Who is happier? '' Dear Ralph Waldo Emerson! In spite you were b. and I am a. I consider myself happier than you were. That is why I share and like much all your minor verse
