Take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
~ Luke 21:34
The world employs its various snares,
Of hopes and pleasures, pains and cares,
And chain’d to earth I lie:
When shall my fetter’d powers be free,
And leave these seats of vanity,
And upward learn to fly?
