This Old House

……”and how’s the business since last year?” asks the admiral. “Can’t complain,” says the other man,sipping his brandy.

 “The children?”

 “Grown a year.”

 On the porch,the women swing and look into the night.

 and it is just the same in every house in every town.For in this world,time does pass,but little happens.Just as

 little happens from year to year,little happens from month to month,day to day. If time and events are not the same

 then it is only people that barely move.

If a person holds no ambitions in this world,he suffers unknowingly. If a person holds ambitions,he suffer’s knowingly, but very slowly.

    Here’s a quote I posted yesterday.
    “When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained.”
