"...I give you the mausoleum of all hope and desire...I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you might forget it now and then for a moment and not spend all of your breath trying to conquer it. Because no battle is ever won...The field only reveals to man his own folly and despair and victory is an illusion of philosophers and fools." - William Faulkner, The Sound and the Fury
