On the Nature of Time


Another of the king’s chief men signified his agreement...and went on to say: “ Your Majesty, when we compare the present life of man on Earth, with that Time of Which We Have No Knowledge, it seems to me like a swift flight of a single sparrow through a banquet hall on a winter’s day. After a few moments of comfort, he vanishes from sight into the wintry world from which he came. Even so, man appears on Earth for a little while, but of what went before this life, or what will follow, we know nothing."

— Excerpt from the Venerable Bede’s Ecclesiastical History of the English People
