Shapes change, and sizes. The rooms are different: bigger and blacker and longer and the shadows are full of things. Creatures - or sometimes the rooms get smaller, fewer, and the furnishings change and change, like the scenes in a kaleidoscope, and I see the people in the portraits walking about in them."

They know that the march toward freedom never ends, man must be ever vigilant and pray less with his lips and more with his legs."
Author: Glenn Beck
