the praise and honors of men

Time makes of the praise and honors of men so much cotton candy--it is sweet, but melts in one's mouth quickly.  Yet how many have paid such a terrible price for that transitory taste.  The problem with approaching life on the basis of "now" is that "now" is over, even as one says the very word.
