    ...and it comes from a Sci-Fi novel.

    Rise of Endymion - Dan Simmons


    The sad thing is... in all my years, I didn't realize this truth until less than a year ago... but I'm happy to say that I know it now.

    I'm glad you guys liked it... when I read that paragraph on my first reading thru the book I was blown away...

    Dan Simmons is an excellent writer, I would recommend his books.
