It was the best of times,it was the worst of times;
it was the age of wisdom,it was the age of foolishness;
it was the epoch of belief,it was the epoch of incredulity;
it was the season of Light,it was the sea- son of Darkness;
it was the spring of hope,it was the winter oI de-spair;
we had everything before us,we had nothing before us;
we were all going direct to Heaven,we were all going direct the other way.
So,in short,I think to have three passions simple but overwhelmingly is happy:
the longing for love,the search for knowledge,andunbearable pity for the suffering of mankind.
One can remain alive long past the usual date of disintegration if one is unafraid of change,insatiable
in intellectual curiosity,interested in big things,and happy in small ways.
Well, that is what I want, I am looking for,and My pursuit,Never give up.
