833. I misused Infinity

There was a time when Eternity was mine.

Alas, now I have only the ephemeral.


There was a time when Infinity was mine.

Alas, now I am forced to be satisfied with the finite.


I misused Eternity;

Therefore Eternity has left me.


I misused Infinity;

Therefore Infinity has left me.


Now I am misusing the finite;

Therefore the finite moment also will leave me soon.
