I would like to make a proclamation that of all the people you are likely to meet nobody will be as hopeless at maths as I- even Saturn. :lol:
John....you did not live to see-
who we are because of what you left,
what it is we are in what we make of you.

According to his biographers, he was always making extravagant statements, "rhodomontades," that he didn't necessarily fully believe in. I always thought this comment, made in high spirits at a party, probably fell somewhere in that category.

The "Unweave a rainbow" quote is actually from Lamia: Book Two, verses 234-237.
