Topic: I don't think of the past. The only thing that matters is the everlasting present.

Not if one, like I do, deals in future$. I wouldn't put it past Maugham to have thought of the past even though he's not thinking of it at present. As far as Maugham's 'everlasting present' goes, I've had many an Xmas present given to me over the years, and due to 'planned obsolescence', they did not last. Brick wall d'oh! Whistle

Nature doesn't loathe the old, for if She did, She'd simply not let 'em live an' cling to a gripe old age. Anxious Pray Think

I find it sickening that, to Ralph, "...old age seems the only disease...", because when I asked my doctor if he knew what what a 'cubic foot' was, after he spent quite a considerable length of time searching the internet and poring over all of his medical books, all he could tell me was that whilst he wasn't sure what 'one' was, he thought it'd have to be worth at least two week's 'compo' to anyone who had 'one' and could feign a convincing limp when they hobbled into his surgery!

Lie whenever it is necessary to prevent the truth obtaining wrongful convictions and wrongful punishments. Man does not recognize what is veritably just but merely that which is considered as being acceptable.

If truth is the summit of being then who amongst us can ever top it or even speak it as a belief? Brick wall Anxious
