    You run and you run to catch up to the sun, but it's sinking, circles around and comes up behind you again. The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older, shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

    Sorry I was listening to Pink Floyd today. Some very poetic and profound lyrics are to be found there.

    If you are depressed you are living in the past.
    If you are anxious you are living in the future.
    If you are at peace you are living in the present.

    I would rather feel pain than nothing at all.

    Tho' much is taken, much abides; and though
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

    ---Tennyson
