If every one in the world will love universally; states not attacking one another; houses not disturbing one another; thieves and robbers becoming extinct; emperor and ministers, fathers and sons, all being affectionate and filial -- if all this comes to pass the world will be orderly.

So, when there is universal love in the world it will be orderly, and when there is mutual hate in the world it will be disorderly.mozi

And the just man trailed God's shining agent, over a black mountain, in his giant track, while a restless voice kept harrying his woman: "It's not too late, you can still look back at the red towers of your native Sodom, the square where once you sang, the spinning-shed, at the empty windows set in the tall house where sons and daughters blessed your marriage-bed."anna akhmatova
I am not yet so lost in lexicography, as to forget that words are the daughters of earth, and that things are the sons of heaven .
