The Consolation of Philosophy�

�It is my view that History is a wheel.�

 �Inconstancy is my very essence says the wheel. Rise up on my spokes if you like but don�t complain when you are plunged back down into the depths. The good times pass away but then so do the bad. Mutability is our tragedy but it�s also our hope. The worst of times, like the best, is always passing away.�

-- Boethius (per Tony Wilson)
