    William Shakespeare

    " Out, out, brief candle!Life's but a walking shadow, a poor playerThat struts and frets his hour upon the stageAnd then is heard no more. It is a taleTold by an idiot, full of sound and fury,Signifying nothing."

    How Could A Lover Fall

    What could have caused your grip to weaken that allowed creation to be? How could a lover fall to his death from the arms of infinite strength? How active you are in the mind sustaining such a great wall that the sun can cast a frightening shadow the world believes. No one...
