Engrave this Quote Thou, silent form, dost tease us out of thoughtAs doth eternity: Cold Pastoral!
When old age shall this generation waste,
Thou shalt remain, in midst of other woe
Than ours, a friend to man, to whom thou say'st,
'Beauty is truth, truth beauty,' -- that is all
Ye know on Earth, and all ye need to know.

-John Keats, Ode On A Grecian Urn, 1820 Tell a Friend
