For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven. There is a time to live, and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to harvest; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to rejoice; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to speak, and a time for solitude; a time to love, and a time for memories. I have seen everything beautiful in its time, and now it is my time to go, I have had a good life.
