Question Poe Beckons Us Eternal

12-8-2022 (by H.R.T.)

‘Time flies by, but never the pain – and so it is with life as well!” It does, however, make one ponder yon - back over the flight of years that have quickly overtake our mortal coils and have inevitably plunged us ever closer to that time - when we can ponder no more!

“Yet another year – and another farthing” that has inevitably evaded our weakening grasp, along with yet another breath of fresh air that is never again to be imbibed in, or even to be deeply savored – “and so it is!”

“So breathe ye deeply of the vapors of time and life so sweet, my fast fading friends, as your next breath could very well be your last? And time and opportunity awaits no man, as oblivion beckons us all eternal!”

Arrow More Poe - just because

HC - you got me started again;

Yes - Poe -Truly he speaks unto other's more:

a. “Believe nothing you hear, and only one half of what you see.”

b. “All that we see (or seem to see) - is but a dream within a dream.”

c. ***“I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge.
It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason.
It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of
insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.”***

d. [“Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality.”]

e. Note: Politicians would love this one: “There are some secrets which do not permit
themselves to be told.”

Also find this one interesting below:

f. “I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no
appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active – not more happy
– nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago.”


g. “I dread the events of the future, not in themselves but in their results.”

h. “To die laughing must be the most glorious of all glorious deaths!”

i. The finale: For our Congressional Folks: “Stupidity is a talent for misconception.”
Personal reply:
Refreshing it is to know that those who've suffered
to maintain ones balance - can quote such realities
of life itself.
[*** This is but one of many - I can relate to. -
If not - you haven't been to hell and back - like
so many I have known!***] many as I - can also
relate to past issues as such - the loss of our Bud's
or Brother's during these ongoing God Awful War's
& Conflict's.]

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
