I built this castle which no one asked me to build.
Thousands passed this way, but no one stood and took a look.
I cast the pearls, but the swines never even sniffed
I squandered the pearls on my own, so why blame the swines ?
Rome was not built in a day, of course
A palace is built, brick-by-brick.
A library is built, book-by-book. Both the palace and the library outlive the person who created them.
I added a new jewel just now to my own library. I will use all my life, to enjoy this jewel. I hope I will add many more such jewels before I die.
