Tout est relatif... Bizarre mais je me sens d'un coup toute petite...bise... et merci pour le lien vers mon blog ;+) Magali
The reminds me of a poem by Thomas Campion:What if a day, or a month, or a yeareCrown thy delights with a thousand sweet contentings?Cannot a chance of a night or an howreCrosse thy desires with as many sad tormentings? Fortune, honor, beauty, youth Are but blossoms dying; Wanton pleasure, doating love, Are but shadowes flying. All our joyes are but toyes, Idle thoughts deceiving; None have power of an howre In their lives bereaving.Earthes but a point to the world, and a manIs but a point to the worlds compared centure:Shall then a point of a point be so vaineAs to triumph in a seely points adventure? All is hassard that we have, There is nothing biding; Dayes of pleasure are like streames Through faire meadowes gliding. Weale and woe, time doth goe, Time is ever turning: Secret fates guide our states, Both in mirth and mourning.
Bonjour JoAnn! Thanks for this text, I really like Campion too (and not only because he was a scientist too ;-) )
Wow thanks for the lesson in size Tony. It has really expanded my view of the universe.
So does it answer this eternal philosophical question "Does size matter?" ?
