"I am not one who was born in the custody of wisdom. I am one who is fond of olden times and intense in quest of the sacred knowing of the ancients." Gustave Courbet

I have liv'd long enough for others, 
Like the Dog in the Wheel, 
And it is now the Season to begin for myself: 
I cannot change that Thing call'd Time, 
But I can alter its Posture and, 
As Boys do turn a looking-glass against the Sunne, 
So I will dazzle you all.

Peter Ackroyd, From Hawksmoor
