Joy of Life

I must admit...I tend "to drift with every passion till my soul is a stringed lute on which all winds can play"...but..."is it for this that I have given away mine ancient wisdom (debatable), and austere control?" - Oscar Wilde

"Uncertainty is an uncomfortable position. But certainty is an absurd one." - Voltaire
