"If the world shoud break and fall on him, it would strike him fearless."
- The Roman Poet Horace
“Pulvis et umbra sumus. (We are but dust and shadow.)”
he who can call today his own:
he who, secure within, can say,
Tomorrow do thy worst, for I have lived today.
Be fair or foul, or rain or shine
the joys I have possessed, in spite of fate, are mine.
Not Heaven itself, upon the past has power,
but what has been, has been, and I have had my hour.”
