“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the
heaven: A time
to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep,
and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; ..... A time to love, and a time
to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.”
- Ecclesiastes 3: 1-4, 8 (KJV)
