The quote my Father repeated

My Father would be 86 in a few days, he died years ago.  But as if in warning of the precious reality of time, as if to remind himself, he often said this quote throughout the full 44 years I knew him.

Spring passes into summer, and through summer and autumn into winter, only the more surely, by its own ultimate return, to triumph over that grave, towards which it resolutely hastened from its first hour.

Cardinal John Henry Newman
