Holmes cartoon by Spy.jpg   Poets are never young, in one sense. Their delicate ear hears the far-off whispers of eternity, which coarser souls must travel towards for scores of years before their dull sense is touched by them. A moment's insight is sometimes worth a life's experience.

~ Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. ~
