My candle burns at both ends.
While I was studying commercial art, I was given an assignment to turn text into a piece of art, and the results still hang in my office. I used a poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay for that piece. It's a poem that resonates within the heart of every harried college student - or teacher. Come to think of it, this poem could probably be named our national motto.
It will not last the night.
But ah my foes, and oh my friends,
It gives a lovely light.
