Passage

She lives in a garret

Up a haunted stair,

And even when she’s frightened

There’s nobody to care.

She cooks so small a dinner

She dines on the smell,

And even if she’s hungry

There’s nobody to tell.

She sweeps her musty lodging

As the dawn steals near,

And even when she’s crying

There’s nobody to hear.

I haven’t seen my neighbour

Since a long time ago,

And even if she’s dead

There’s nobody to know.

– Frances Park

Passage

These few precepts in thy memory

See thou character. Give thy thoughts no tongue,

Nor any unproportioned thought this act;

Be thou familiar, but by no means vulgar

Those friends thou hast, and their adoption tried

Grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steel,

But do not dull thy palm with entertainment

One each new hatched, unfledged comrade. Beware

Of entrance to a quarrel, but being in,

Bear that the opposed may beware of thee.

Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice,

Take each man’s censure, but reserve thy judgment.

Costly thy habit as thy purse can buy,

But not expressed in fancy; rich not gaudy;

For the appeal often proclaims the man.

Neither a borrower nor a lender be;

For loan oft loses both itself and friend,

And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.

– William Shakespeare

Passage

Where is the peace, the wishful thinking of us all?

Where is the law and order, the basic desire of each and all?

We look for a thing, which we have seldom

wished for from our genuine heart.

How to get rid of this rotten society where

everyone is sick, but calls himself healthy?

Life is short but the wish to live is too long.

The more and more we are heading towards death.

The more and more the allurements of the world

do seize us,

The germs of discord and dissension prey on us.

And life is reduced to a mere dream;

What a strange world this is indeed, which keeps

us all restless and dissatisfied;

Perhaps this is all the leela the play of Maya,

entrapping us all.

O God! You have made us all slaves to Maya,

seizing us from all sides and keeping us disturbed;

I don’t know what is good and what is evil,

I fail to distinguish between Maya and reality, the

foul and the fair,

As if being born in this world was a punishment;

Are we condemned to live in this hell once and for all?

Where we have to come again and again to suffer,

God! Make us get rid of all that glitters but is not gold.
