for everything there is a season,
    a time for every activity under heaven.
  a time to be born and a time to die.
    a time to plant and a time to harvest.
 a time to kill and a time to heal.
    a time to tear down and a time to build up.
 a time to cry and a time to laugh.
    a time to grieve and a time to dance.
 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones.
    a time to embrace and a time to turn away.
 a time to search and a time to quit searching.
    a time to keep and a time to throw away.
 a time to tear and a time to mend.
    a time to be quiet and a time to speak.
 a time to love and a time to hate.
    a time for war and a time for peace.

ecclesiastes 3:1-8
