8,904.  I rose at night, and visited

The Cave of the Unborn:

And crowded shapes surrounded me

For tidings of the life to be.

Who long had prayed the silent Head

To haste its advent morn

 

Their eyes were lit with ardent trust,

Hope thrilled their every tone:

‘A scene the loveliest, is it not?

A pure delight, a beauty spot

Where all is gentle, true and just,

And darkness is unknown?’

 

My heart was anguished for their sake.

I could not frame a word;

And they descried my sunken face,

And seemed to read therein, and trace

The news that pity would not break,

Not truth leave unaverred.

 

And as I silently retired

I turned and watched them still,

And they came helter-skelter out,

Driven forward like a rabble rout

Into the world they had so desired,

By the all-immanent Will.  (Children & Unborn)  Thomas Hardy, The Unborn

 

 

95,224.  ... Had I the ear of wombed souls

Ere their terrestrial chart unrolls,

And thou wert free

To cease, or be,

Then would I tell thee all I know,

And put it to thee: Wilt thou take Life so? ...  Thomas Hardy, To an Unborn Pauper Child

 

 

91,111.  Ah, fill the cup: – what boots it to repeat

How time is slipping underneath our feet:

Unborn TOMORROW, and dead YESTERDAY

Why fret about it, if TODAY be sweet!  (Time & Unborn)  Edward Fitzgerald, The Rubdiyat of Omar Khayyam

 

 

91,998.  Isn’t it true that the fault of birth rests somewhat on the child?  I believe it's we who led our parents on to bear us, and it’s our unborn children who make our flesh itch.  T E Lawrence

 

 

91,999.  If it were possible to talk to the unborn, one could never explain to them how it feels to be alive, for life is washed in the speechless real.  Jacques Barzun, American educationalist & historian

 

 

92,000.  I feel sure that unborn babies pick their parents.  (Unborn & Parent)  Gloria Swanson

 

 

95,786.  We are staggeringly lucky to find ourselves in the spotlight.  However brief our time in the sun, if we waste a second of it, or complain that it is dull or barren or (like a child) boring, couldn't this be seen as a callous insult to those unborn trillions who will never even be offered life in the first place?  Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion p361
