Paul Laurence Dunbar - Old

I have seen peoples come and go 
Alike the Ocean'd ebb and flow; 
I have seen kingdoms rise and fall 
Like springtime shadows on a wall. 
I have seen houses rendered great 
That grew from life's debased estate, 
And all, all, all is change I see, 
So, dearest God, take me, take me.

Know what insurance

Know what insurance Quotes Chimp want when deciding which agent to do business with. This means understanding what insurance value means: the price, quality of coverage, and the service the agent and company offer. Different agents and companies may offer more attractive prices but be weaker in services such as quick and efficient handling of claims or long-term commitment to insurance. If price is most important to you, buy primarily on price. But at least be aware of all options so you can make informed buying decisions based on your personal needs.

this poem moved me for it is the signs of a man who believes he has seen enough in his life and doesnt wish to belong to the world anymore.
