I call to theeIn new lands across the sea:Let, another on narrow pathways, come to me.Furthest and Highest,yet not beyond reach.Choose thou well a path that will teachHow the sunken is raisedand emptiness is filledand a wandering heart can finally be stilled.Seek the great stone! Mark it well,with a sign.That the one who shall followShall see it is mine,and seeing, shall ponder and certainly knowAs the Ancients have writ: "As above, so below."And I shall guard the Source of Greatness;Waiting by a teardropFrom neither joy nor sorrow born,In silver bound, beneath the ground,I am the spiral horn."

The moments that used to define them - a mother's approval, a father's nod - are covered by moments of their own accomplishments.

35. "Hatred the only moving force, a petulant unhappy striving - childhood the only happiness, and that unknowing; then the continual battle that cannot ever possibly be won; a losing fight against ill-health - poverty for nearly all. Life is a long disease with only one termination and its last years are appalling: weak, racked by the stone, rheumatismal pains, senses going, friends, family, occupation gone, a man must pray for imbecility or a heart of stone. All under sentence of death, often ignominious,frequently agonizing: and then the unspeakable levity with which the faint chance of happiness is thrown away for some jealousy, tiff, sullenness, private vanity, mistaken sense of honour, that deadly, weak and silly notion."
Author: Patrick O'Brian

39. "Stone-cutters fighting time with marble, you fore defeated Challengers of oblivion Eat cynical earnings, knowing rock splits, records fall down, The square-limbed Roman letters Scale in the thaws, wear in the rain. The poet as well Builds his monument mockingly; For man will be blotted out, the blithe earth die, the brave sun Die blind and blacken to the heart: Yet stones have stood for a thousand years, and pained thoughts found The honey of peace in old poems."
Author: Robinson Jeffers

41. "...We claim the present as the pre-sent, as the hereafter. We are unraveling our navels so that we may ingest the sun. We are not afraid of the darkness, we trust that the moon shall guide us.We are determining the future at this very moment. We now know that the heart is the philosophers' stone. Our music is our alchemy. We stand as the manifested equivalent of 3 buckets of water and a hand full of minerals, thus realizing that those very buckets turned upside down supply the percussion factor of forever..."

"Out of three or four in a roomOne is always standing at the windowHair dark above his thoughts Behind him the wordsAnd in front of him the words, wandering without luggage Hearts without provision, prophecies without water, And big stones put there And stayed, closed, like letters, With no adresses; and no one to receive them."
Author: Yehuda Amichai
