I am the family face; flesh perishes, I live on, projecting trait and trace through time to times anon, and leaping from place to place over oblivion.

Thomas Hardy (1840-1928)

It's like a string of beads, like an immortality itself - until it's broken...

Interesting point. Heredity, genes, DNA.

From the Poem by Thomas Hardy

HEREDITY


I am the family face;
Flesh perishes, I live on,
Projecting trait and trace
Through time to times anon,
And leaping from place to place
Over oblivion.


The years-heired feature that can
In curve and voice and eye
Despise the human span
Of durance -- that is I;
The eternal thing in man,
That heeds no call to die

Thomas Hardy

Nothing can be had, and held long enough, of all we inherit, if nothing is being done with it to put it to good use.

Leaping over oblivion, from place to place,
The overleap will eventually have to face.

Leaping over oblivion, from place to place,
Requires of heredity a certain grace.
Needs must jump, with eyes blindfold,
Knowing not what landings hold.
