In the Morning of Life

by Thomas Moore

In the morning of life, when its cares are unknown,
And its pleasures in all their new lustre begin,
When we live in a bright-beaming world of our own,
And the light that surrounds us is all from within;
Oh 'tis not, believe me, in that happy time
We can love, as in hours of less transport we may; —
Of our smiles, of our hopes, 'tis the gay sunny prime,
But affection is truest when these fade away.

When we see the first glory of youth pass us by,
Like a leaf on the stream that will never return,
When our cup, which had sparkled with pleasure so high,
First tastes of the other, the dark-flowing urn;
Then, then in the time when affection holds sway
With a depth and a tenderness joy never knew;
Love, nursed among pleasures, is faithless as they,
But the love born of Sorrow, like Sorrow, is true.

In climes full of sunshine, though splendid the flowers,
Their sighs have no freshness, their odour no worth;
\‘Tis the cloud and the mist of our own Isle of showers
That call the rich spirit of fragrancy forth.
So it is not \‘mid splendour, prosperity, mirth,
That the depth of Love's generous spirit appears;
To the sunshine of smiles it may first owe its birth,
But the soul of its sweetness is drawn out by tears.

Over the last century, the rise of the automobile industry went from being an industry of cool to an industry of convenience and affordability. The growth of mass consumerism forced companies to rearrange their priorities, and instead of building cars rooted in design, beauty, aerodynamics, and style, cars are now built to cost less, get better mileage, and ultimately get people from point A to point B. Well, here’s a look back at some of the finer moments in automobile history.

Known unofficially as the Ferrari Daytona, this stunning two-seater was introduced in 1968 as a symbol of class, sophistication, and above all else, wealth. It distinguishes itself from other Ferraris with a sharp-edged design, as opposed to the traditional rounded design that had been on the market previously.

You might also know this car by its other name, Nissan S30. This trend-setting sportster was thought up by Japanese automobile makers to compete with those ever-so-stylish European sports cars. As one of the first relatively low priced sports cars available on the market, its regarded as one of the most successful sports car lines ever produced.
