    I have a dream. I'm in a dark cavern watching a man that is placing a sword into a furnace. Then he beat it on the hanvil. Then he cools it down into water. I realize the smith is life, the fire, the anvil and the water are the ordeal she put on us. And the sword is me. THe harder the life beats me, the harder I become.

    As far as history goes, yes, it is true, things that have value usually get "faked" and things that usually do not, don't.
