Even Castles made of sand, fall into the sea, eventually.
Jimi Hendrix

As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Marcus Tullius Cicero

Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.
John Lubbock

In today's world, I wonder if Marcus Tullius Cicero's quote holds true. It seems to me, that once someone is accused of something, even if it is proved untrue, the accusation follows the person, and to some degree, colors whatever pertains to him/her in the future. Or, conversely, no matter what someone does, espcially if that someone is "famous", the most outrageous conduct/deeds are overlooked. (I have definitely gotten more cynical in my old age!)
