Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

17 Sep 2003
To everything there is a season
And a time to every purpose under heaven:

A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to to build up;

A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;

A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to cast away;

A time to rend, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

A time to love, and a time to hate;
A time for war, and a time for peace.

from Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul on Tough Stuff.

Err.. yeah this was probably quoted in Chicken Soup, but yeah, it also came from Ecclessiastes....
I think it'll do the verse some justice if you had referenced it to Ecclesiastes instead of Chicken Soup.

It's petty and not necessary, but it'd be good if you quote it properly.. nyways.. PY eheheh. hello!
