To himself by Paul Fleming

Be ever undaunted! Be ever unvanquished!

Yield to no fortune; stand above envy;

be content with who you are and think it no affliction

if fortune, place and time have once more conspired against you.

That which grieves and comforts you, believe it all foreordained;

accept your fate. Regret nothing.

Do what must be done and ere it’s demanded of you.

What you can still hope for, that may yet come to be.

What is it we still lament, still praise? Misfortune…

Has AOM jumped the shark or is it's just cyclical

There is nothing political or religious about this topic but let's face it, unless I'm discussing going shirtless or masterbating, there isn't too many active groups at the moment. I thought it would be a rude headline for the front page though. So here it is, on Herb's biblical paradigm/TGD. At least I think it is. You can't comment on the group's main page anymore and the feed doesn't show on the community main page either anymore (or does it again now?) so who knows, maybe no one can read…See More
