Age seldom arrives smoothly or quickly. It's more often a succession of jerks.
~ Jean Rhys (August 24, 1890 - May 14, 1979)
Let me enjoy the earth no less / Because the all-enacting Might / That fashioned forth its loveliness / Had other aims than my delight.
~ Thomas Hardy (June 02, 1840 - January 11, 1928)
