The Mirror of the Sea

Love, though in a sense it may be admitted to be
stronger than death, is by no means so universal
and so sure,
in fact, love is rare-
the love of men, of things, of ideas,
the love of perfected skill. 
For love is the enemy of haste;
it takes count of passing days, of men who pass away,
of a fine art matured slowly in the course of years
and doomed in a short time to pass away too, and be no more.
Love and regret
go hand in hand in this world of changes
swifter than the shifting of the clouds
reflected in the mirror of the sea.
 
 
Joseph Conrad

Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.
