#71030 - 05/23/02 07:31 PM Re: Damp Squib
>Isn't that a quote from William Faulkner's As Hamlet Lay Dying?
You might need to go back a little further.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
[Edit: But you knew that!]
