The lone and level sands stretch far away.

for future generations.
Create the legacy of a better world.

when every one has to throw off his mask?
Do you believe that life will always let itself be mocked?

he may be so inexplicably woven into relationships of life
which extend far beyond himself that he almost cannot reveal himself.
But he who cannot reveal himself cannot love,
and he who cannot love is the most unhappy man of all.

and talk but a tinkling cymbal,
where there is no love.
