[Oh, Issyk-Kul, My Issyk-Kul--my Unfinished Song! Why Did I Have To Remember That Day When I Came Here With Asel And Stopped On The Same Rise, Right Above The Water? Everything Was The Same. The Blue-and-white Waves Ran Up The Yellow Shore Holding Hands. The Sun Was Setting Behind The Mountains, And At The Far End Of The Lake The Water Was Tinged With Pink. The Swans Wheeled Over The Water With Excited, Exultant Cries. They Soared Up And Dropped Down On Outspread Wings That Seemed To Hum. They Whipped Up The Water And Started Wide, Foaming Circles. Everything Was The Same, Only There Was No Asel With Me. Where Are You, My Slender Poplar In A Red Kerchief, Where Are You Now?]

Quotes About Snuff

"But the truth, he knows, is otherwise. His pleasure in living has been snuffed out. Like a leaf on a stream, like a puffball on a breeze, he has begun to float towards his end. He sees it quite clearly, and it fills him with (the word will not go away) despair.

You breathe it in, your limbs relax, you cease to care, even at the moment when the steel touches your throat." - Author: J.M. Coetzee

"The Utopians call those nations that come and ask magistrates from them Neighbours; but those to whom they have been of more particular service, Friends; and as all other nations are perpetually either making leagues or breaking them, they never enter into an alliance with any state.
