I think you are latent with existences—you are so dear to me. Forever alive, forever forward, Stately, solemn, sad, withdrawn, baffled, mad, turbulent, feeble, dissatisfied, Desperate, proud, fond, sick, accepted by men, rejected by men, They go!

Healthy, free, the world before me. I get short of breath my heart first skips a beat, then speeds up fast, feeling as if it will pound right out of my chest. You're beautiful because you stop to read the cards in newsagents' windows about lost cats and missing dogs.

Ugly like he is, Beautiful like hers, Beautiful like Venus, Ugly like his, Beautiful like she is, Ugly like Mars. Do you say, Venture not?

I will recruit for myself and you as I go; I will scatter myself among men and women as I go; I will toss the new gladness and roughness among them; Whoever denies me, it shall not trouble me; Whoever accepts me, he or she shall be blessed, and shall bless me. I know that they go, but I know not where they go; But I know that they go toward the best--toward something great. I'm ugly for taking the line that a meal without meat is a beautiful woman with one eye. Gently, but with undeniable will, divesting myself of the holds that hold me.

They too are on the road!. Do you say, I am already prepared—I am well-beaten and undenied—adhere to me? I'm ugly because I proved God to be a mathematical impossibility. I'm ugly for making hand-shadows in front of the giant bulb, so when they look up, the captains of vessels in distress see the ears of a rabbit, or the eye of a fox, or the legs of a galloping black horse.

You road I enter upon and look around, I believe you are not all that is here, I believe that much unseen is also here. And some new analysis suggests multiple large impacts may explain the modern day Earth-moon system even better : The new model is consistent with science's current understanding of the formation of Earth.
