More Wisdom from Will

Care keeps his watch in every old man's eye,

And where care lodges, sleep will never lie;

But where unbruised youth

with unstuff'd brain

Doth couch his limbs,

there golden sleep doth reign.

~Romeo and Juliet II.ii 39-42

The older I get, the more I know this to be true.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
