Time is flying never to return.
If ye despise the human race, and mortal arms, yet remember that there is a God who is mindful of right and wrong.
Happy the man who has been able to learn the causes of things.
It is easy to go down into Hell; night and day, the gates of dark Death stand wide; but to climb back again, to retrace one's steps to the upper air - there's the rub, the task.
Perhaps even these things, one day, will be pleasing to remember.
I shudder when relating it.
