A few thoughts from a philosopher and a poet

"A kind Providence has placed in our breasts a hatred of the unjust and cruel, in order that we may preserve ourselves from cruelty and injustice. They who bear cruelty, are accomplices in it." Edmund Burke, quoted by Captain Carroll LeFon.

Days
What are days for?
Days are where we live.   
They come, they wake us   
Time and time over.
They are to be happy in:   
Where can we live but days?
Ah, solving that question
Brings the priest and the doctor   
In their long coats
Running over the fields.

Philip Larkin, 1922-1985, quoted by foxywiththetruth.
