Today you are you! That is truer than true!

There is no one alive who is you-er than you!

                                   Dr. Seuss

The events in our lives happen in a sequence in time,

but in their significance to ourselves, they find their

own order… the continuous thread of revelation.

. . .I had sent my heroine straight down a rabbit hole,

to begin with, without the least idea what was to happen afterwards. . .

                     Lewis Carroll about                       Alice in Wonderland

And it was at that age . . . Poetry arrived

in search of me. I don’t know, I don’t know where

it came from, from winter or a river . . .

and it touched me.

                             Pablo Neruda

                                                                  

Victorian Writers

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair… A Tale of Two Cities Charles Dickens (1812-1870)
