“But there is something about Time. The sun rises and sets. The stars swing slowly across the sky and fade.
Clouds fill with rain and snow, empty themselves and fill again. The moon is born, and dies, and is reborn.
Around millions of clocks swing hour hands, and minute hands, and second hands.
Around goes the continual circle of notes of the scale.
Around goes the circle of night and day, the circle of weeks forever revolving, and of months, and of years.”
~ Madeleine L’Engle “The Small Rain”
