Three minutes of awesomeness. You can watch the entire speech here.
O dark dark dark. They all go into the dark,
The vacant interstellar spaces, the vacant into the vacant,
The captains, merchant bankers, eminent men of letters,
The generous patrons of art, the statesmen and the rulers,
Distinguished civil servants, chairmen of many committees,
Industrial lords and petty contractors, all go into the dark,
And dark the Sun and Moon, and the Almanach de Gotha
And the Stock Exchange Gazette, the Directory of Directors,
And cold the sense and lost the motive of action.
And we all go with them, into the silent funeral,
Nobody’s funeral, for there is no one to bury.
-T. S. Eliot
“… millions long for immortality who don’t know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon.” -Susan Ertz
“Dessert without cheese is like a beauty with only one eye. “ -Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
“Into the darkness they go, the wise and the lovely.” -Edna St. Vincent Millay
