my unemployment among many other things results in my performing confusing searches- that is it would be interesting to map them in hindsight, but in any case i just discovered Thomas Moore today (even though the word Utopia -as with most of us probably- was part of my vocabulary before i could form a concept, let alone make any comparisons with society). thank you BrainyQuote.
in any case, hadn't updated this thing here a while, thought i'd pick up the washcloth, hehe.
so select quotes:
"like ships that have gone down at sea, when heaven was all tranquility"
"glory is fleeting but obscurity is forever"
"all that's bright must fade/the brightest still the fleetest/all that's sweet was made/but to be lost when sweetest"
"a friendship that like love is warm. a love like friendship steady"
"and the heart that is soonest awake to the flowers is always the first to be touch'd by the thorns"
