Greg's paper

(Reinhold Niebuhr)
God, give me grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.

(St.Vincent Millay) Down into the darkness of the grave
Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind;
Quietly they go, the intelligent, the witty, the brave.
I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.

(Dylan Thomas). Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
