John Hoskins' on what it is to live or die.

Of The Loss Of Time

"If life be time that here is lent,
And time on earth be cast away,
Whoso his time hath here misspent,
Hath hastened his own dying day;
So it doth prove a killing crime
To massacre our living time.

If doing naught be like to death,
Of him that doth, chameleon-wise
Take only pains to draw his breath,
The passers-by may pasquilize,
Not, here he lives: but, here, he dies."



  1. Time is a human invention that allows us to grapple with the concepts that things have occured, and that things are likely to occur. Somewhere along the way we turned time into a way to create stress.
