Thoughts for the Season

“Men must endure / Their going hence, even as their coming hither;
Ripeness is all. Come on.” [King Lear 5.2.9-11]

“Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere

The ceremony of innocence is drowned. The best

Lack all conviction while the worst

Are full of passionate intensity.”    [Yeats, "The Second Coming"]
