Not marble, nor the gilded monuments
Of princes, shall outlive this powerful rhyme;
But you shall shine more bright in these contents
Than unswept stone besmear'd with sluttish time.
When wasteful war shall statues overturn,
And broils root out the work of masonry,
Nor Mars his sword nor war's quick fire shall burn
The living record of your memory.
'Gainst death and all-oblivious enmity
Shall you pace forth; your praise shall still find room
Even in the eyes of all posterity
That wear this world out to the ending doom.
So, till the judgment that yourself arise,
You live in this, and dwell in lover's eyes.

Opinion Survey:

Death penalty: I've always been strongly against it. However appalling the crimes committed hanging/electrocuting/injecting the perpetrator won't reverse it's effects: the murder victim will still be dead.
Abortion: I'm all for choice. A woman's body is her own business, what right does a man, or indeed a governing body/committe, have to decide?
The legalization of drugs: I'm torn on this one. My father has M.S. and cannabis has/is being proven to help ease the symptoms, so to keep it illegal is highly likely to condemn innocent people to a life of agony. So I suppose I'm for it's legalisation. As for the others, ones that have no medicinal properties, I'm against it.
Censorship: I'm fervently censorship: ideas are wonderful things. What have you got to hide?
Pre-marital sex: I've got nothing against it ;)
RU-486 and the morning-after pill. Should they be legalized and more readily available?: Isn't the morning after pill already legal?
President Bush: I'm very anti. I wouldn't normally comment on the leader of another country but he took the whole world to war, has destroyed thousands of lives and is about to do it all over again. I will never find anything good to say about that abomination.
General political leanings: I suppose I'd classify myself as a liberal. I don't have any particular allegiance, I vote more on a sense of justice. I've never really been able to comprehend how anyone can be utterly aligned to one movement since can generally find the odd policy or two in a manifesto that appeals to me, whoever's it may be (BNP excepted).
Feminism: I don't see how it is possible to be a woman and not be a feminist. The world is still appalling biased towards the advancement of men and against women.
Homosexual marriage: What's the difference?
How do you feel about gays in the military? As boy scout leaders? As teachers? As church leaders?: Put up a valid argument against and then I'll dignify that with a response.
Would you say you are more racist or more open-minded about other peoples' races and cultures?: I'm open-minded.
Do you look down on foreigners? (Are you a Xenophobe)?: I love other cultures.
Should church & state be separate?: I think so.
God?: Yes. Although I don't believe in creationism. I believe god didn't create the garden, He is the garden.
