All life's forms are akin, yet none is like to another:
they are a Choir that makes God's hidden art manifest.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749-1832)
German poet, novelist, dramatist, humanist, scientist, theorist, painter;
perhaps one of history's greatest geniuses

Father of night, Father of day
Father who takes the darkness away
Father who teacheth the birds to fly
Builder of rainbows up in the sky
Father of loneliness and pain
Father of love and Father of rain.
Father of day, Father of night
Father of black, Father of white
Father who built the mountains so high
Who shapeth the cloud there up in the sky
Father of time and Father of dreams
Father who turneth the river and streams.
Father of grain, Father of wheat
Father of cold and Father of heat
Father of air and Father of trees
Who dwells in our hearts and our memories
Father of minutes, Father of days
Father of whom we most solemnly praise.
Bob Dylan (Born Robert Allen Zimmerman, 1941)
American singer-songwriter, author, musician and poet
