We prefer Shakespearean Sonnets, reflections on Space and Time, and posts along the lines of:
In order to form an immaculate member of a flock of sheep one must, above all, be a sheep. --Albert Einstein
CXVII Accuse me thus: that I have scanted all, Wherein I should your great deserts repay, Forgot upon your dearest love to call, Whereto all bonds do tie me day by day; That I have frequent been with unknown minds, And given to time your own dear-purchas'd right; That I have hoisted sail to all the winds Which should transport me farthest from your sight. Book both my wilfulness and errors down, And on just proof surmise, accumulate; Bring me within the level of your frown, But shoot not at me in your waken'd hate; Since my appeal says I did strive to prove The constancy and virtue of your love. --William Shakespeare
It is our continuing goal to foster the world's greatest converstation.

When beauty fires the blood, how love exalts the mind. -John Dryden, 1700
