ARS LONGA, VITA BREVIS

A person’s life is short, but their creations often endure much longer.-Hippocrates(460 BC-370 BC). He was a Greek physician in Classical Greece, and he is considered one of the most outstanding figures in the history of medicine.

Part 1:

Without the inspiration of curiosity, no one can be an historian, sociologist, psychologist, philosopher, or a serious student of any one of the many humanities and social sciences or any one of the physical, biological and applied sciences. Inspiration, receptivity, and curiosity are indispensable as driving forces, but they are insufficient to bring a budding mind to flower, insufficient to have the mind rise to a higher flight and to stay flying for years and even decades. The individual must make something of these driving forces with other human qualities like: persistence, effort, endurance, patience and a number of other personality factors.


[Edited for length - MODERATOR]

When writing and publishing,
when poetizing and essaying,
one casts one’s bread upon the
waters and finds it after many1
days sometimes, as Longfellow
said…“in the heart of a friend,”2
not always, though, not with all
and everyone. If I avoid a study and
literary work which does not die when3
I die, and if I do God’s will by working
for the coming of God’s Kingdom, doing
some little thing knowing that ars longa,4
vita brevis, with my working tempo set by
a psychic chronometer with its hands, its
dynamics: intellect-spiritual-creativity, &
with Andrew Marvell, I will roll all my5
strength and all my sweetness up into one
ball and tear my pleasures with rough strife.

I will go through the iron gates of life, & my
work will then be found after many days & I
will find myself far beyond this least of worlds,
and I will be plunged into many oceans & lands
of light and their gardens of Paradise: oh so
safe, so very safe forevermore, forevermore!
