The Pride of Life

it is addressed thusly:
Nor the lust of the flesh, nor the lust of the eyes.

it reads:
A sphere of crystal, a looking-glass
A diamond night, a time to pass
Writing by moonlight on the floor
Rhyming tiles, a song of lore:
"What is more fleeting in its strife
Than desire for pleasures of this life
Lo, it has come and it has gone
As the hour before the dawn."

  1. Yet again, more synchronous thoughts. The pride of life was made mention in an entry the day before yours.

    ...I'm at a place where I am prepared for the deeps. Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought. Do you see those arrows coming at you? Take them like a warrior. Bear the pain and you shall overcome all pettiness that is a part of the pride of life...
