Everything passed. ~ The Scarlet Plague by Jack London. With the coming of the Scarlet Death the world fell apart, absolutely, irretrievably.

Lord!—think of it!" ~ The Scarlet Plague by Jack London. All things pass. Only remain cosmic force and matter, ever in flux, ever acting and reacting and realizing the eternal types—the priest, the soldier, and the king. Out of the mouths of babes comes the wisdom of all the ages. Some will fight, some will rule, some will pray; and all the rest will toil and suffer sore while on their bleeding carcasses is reared again, and yet again, without end, the amazing beauty and surpassing wonder of the civilized state. ~ The Scarlet Plague by Jack London.
