“Now is the Time : 170 Ways to Seize the Moment”
By Patrick Lindsay
Now is the time …: to rely on your common sense.
“It’s a thousand times better to have common sense without education
Than to have education without common sense.”
Robert G. Ingersoll (1833-1899)
Acu’men’ and Accurate Women
So few are the many kings and queens;
Battles royal won and lost – yet
Would you take the bet of who
Has been the one to fight
In the center eye
Of the fierce storm?
A nonet has nine lines. The first line has nine syllables,
the second line eight syllables, the third line seven syllables, etc…
until line nine that finishes with one syllable.
(With quotes by famous folks
Whose last names start with the alphabet
Or at least have those ‘tricky letters’ –
U, Q, X & Y in them)
