Hell is full of pain
Hell is for the psychologically insane
Hell is full of personal disdain

Life is now
Death is three score and ten
Heaven is a vow
I wish I knew now what I knew then

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?
