"we only have to look at ourselves for proof that extremely unlikely things can and do happen all the time" - Stephen Hawking

Happy Birthday, Oscar! Oscar Wilde (October 16, 1854- November 30, 1900)  
From The Ballad of Reading Gaol (1897)
Yet each man kills the thing he loves
  By each let this be heard,
Some do it with a bitter look,
  Some with a flattering word,
The coward does it with a kiss,
  The brave man with a sword!

Some kill their love when they are young,
  And some when they are old;
Some strangle with the hands of Lust,
  Some with the hands of Gold:
The kindest use a knife, because
  The dead so soon grow cold.
