Antiquarian Anabaptist

Apologetics from an Anabaptist perspective

Fame is a dream

Fame is a dream– the praise of man as brief
As morning dew upon the faded leaf;
The summer sun exhales the pearly tear,
And leaves no trace of its existence there.
Seek not for immortality below,
But fix your hopes beyond this vale of woe,
That when oblivion gathers round thy sod,
A lasting record may be found with God.

-Susanna Moodie
