ἐπιτέμνειν


   "Vain are the thousand creeds
 That move men's hearts: unutterably vain;
    Worthless as withered weeds,
 Or idlest froth amid the boundless main..."  
     
                                          e.b.

"He is an happy man, that hath learned to read himself, more than all books; If all the world were his, he could be no other than he is; no whit gladder of himself, no whit higher in his carriage; because he knows, that contentment lies not in the things he hath, but in the mind that values them.- Joseph Hall, D.D.,

Best wishes to you, Rob.
