"Character cannot be develped in ease and quiet. Only through expeerience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition insoired and succes achieved." -Helen Keller

An unfathomable ocean
A dark an brilliant overcast evening
Almighty Zeus has thrown a dash
into the ocean
brackish and salty, it hit the sand
were waves bear down on rocks
slowly eroding them
a shell was glanced by a bolt an Aphrodit was born
