Some thoughts for the evening:
Backward, turn backward,
O Time, in your flight
make me a child again
just for to-night!
--Elizabeth Akers Allen
Deep into the darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.
-- Edgar Allan Poe
One need not be a chamber to be haunted;
One need not be a house;
The brain has corridors surpassing
-- Emily Dickinson
Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.
-- Ambrose Redmoon
