Take everything you like seriously, except yourselves. At two o’clock in the morning, if you open your window and listen, You will hear the feet of the Wind that is going to call the sun. And the trees in the Shadow rustle and the trees in the moonlight glisten, And though it is deep, dark night, you feel that the night is done. If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten. I am, by calling, a dealer in words; and words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind. Of all the liars in the world, sometimes the worst are our own fears. Rudyard Kipling – whose birthday we remember on this date. Image found here.
