7696 Edward Robert

AUTHOR:Edward Robert, Earl of Lytton (Owen Meredith) Bulwer-Lytton (1831–1891)
QUOTATION:            The ages roll
Forward; and forward with them draw my soul
      Into Time’s infinite sea.
And to be glad or sad I care no more;
But to have done and to have been before
      I cease to do and be!
