Is This A Dagger Which I See Before Me, The Handle Toward My Hand? Come, Let Me Clutch Thee. I Have Thee Not, And Yet I See Thee Still. Art Thou Not, Fatal Vision, Sensible To Feeling As To Sight? Or Art Thou But A Dagger Of The Mind, A False Creation, Proceeding From The Heat-oppressed Brain?
~ William Shakespeare, "Macbeth", Act 2 scene 1
My Friends And My Road-fellows, Pity The Nation That Is Full Of Beliefs And Empty Of Religion. Pity The Nation That Wears A Cloth It Does Not Weave, Eats A Bread It Does Not Harvest, And Drinks A Wine That Flows Not From Its Own Winepress. Pity The Nation That Acclaims The Bully As Hero, And That Deems The Glittering Conqueror Bountiful. Pity The Nation That Raises Not Its Voice Save When It Walks In A Funeral, Boasts Not Except Among Its Ruins, And Will Rebel Not Save When Its Neck Is Laid Between The Sword And The Block. Pity The Nation Whose Statesman Is A Fox, Whose Philosopher Is A Juggler, And Whose Art Is The Art Of Patching And Mimicking. Pity The Nation That Welcomes Its New Ruler With Trumpetings, And Farewells Him With Hootings, Only To Welcome Another With Trumpetings Again. Pity The Nation Divided Into Fragments, Each Fragment Deeming Itself A Nation.
~ Kahlil Gibran
All Humanity Is Passion; Without Passion, Religion, History, Novels, Art Would Be Ineffectual.

Why Art Thou Cast Down, O My Soul? And Why Art Thou Disquieted In Me? Hope Thou In God: For I Shall Yet Praise Him For The Help Of His Countenance.
~ Psalm 42, Book II, Holy Bible
