Why I Turn To My Books For Comfort

"The best thing for being to learn something. That is the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then - to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting."

Ah, to have something that I cannot regret,
and that I cannot lose.
Except it would be my lot in life to watch
as even that is slowly torn from me.
