Is This Not Life Best Described?


The day wore on, and all these bright colours subsided, and assumed a quieter tint, like young hopes softened down by time, or youthful features by degrees resolving into the calm and serenity of age.  But they were scarcely less beautiful in their slow decline, then they had been in their prime: for nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own; and from morning to night, as from the cradle to the grave, it is but a succession of changes so gentle and easy, that we can scarcely mark their progress.

Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens
