Art and the lure of the ruin
And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.
—William Shakespeare (via lovespulse)

How long a time lies in one little word!/ Four lagging winters and four wanton springs / End in a word; Such is the breath of kings.
