“GAUNT: What is six winters? They are quickly gone.

BOLINGBROKE: To men in joy; but grief makes one hour ten.”

- from “The Tragedy of Richard II, Act I, Scene III”

The man who stood across from me knew the bitter truth, or at least he sensed it. The look of sadness on his face hinted at it. The glistening of tears in his eyes could not hide it.
