The people think of wealth
and power as the greatest fate,
But in this world a spell of health
is the best state.
What men call sovereignty is a
worldly strife and constant war;
Worship of God is the highest throne,
the happiest of all estates.

Suleiman is also remembered for his love of Hurrem Sultan or “Roxelana” , a harem slave he freed and then married.

May Swenson quotes ~
• “We play in the den of the Gods and snort at death.”

Question -
Body my house / my horse my hound
what will I do / when you are fallen

Where will I sleep / How will I ride / What will I hunt

Where can I go / without my mount
all eager and quick / How will I know
in thicket ahead / is danger or treasure
when Body my good / bright dog is dead

How will it be / to lie in the sky
without roof or door / and wind for an eye

With cloud for shift / how will I hide?

Algernon Charles Swinburne quotes ~

• “Body and spirit are twins: God only knows which is which.”
• “When the hounds of spring are on winter's traces,/ The mother of months in meadow or plain/ Fills the shadows and windy places/ With lisp of leaves and ripple of rain . . .”

John Millington Synge quotes ~
• “I'm a good scholar when it comes to reading but a blotting kind of writer when you give me a pen.”
• “A man who is not afraid of the sea will soon be drowned.”
• “As a man has no right to kill one of his children if it is diseased or insane, so a man who has made the gradual and conscious expression of his personality in literature the aim of his life, has no right to suppress himself any carefully considered work. Suppression, if it is deserved, will come rapidly enough from the same causes that suppress the unworthy members of a man’s family.”

• “Every beginning is only a sequel, after all, and the book of events is always open halfway through.”

• “Life lasts but a few scratches of the claw in the sand.”
