    Liturgical:- A process by which the orator conveys not only the knowledge of hell to the listener, but also a measure of the sentiment and experience of the place.

    Legend:-
    "I should only believe in a God that would know how to dance. And when I saw my devil, I found him serious, thorough, profound, solemn: he was the spirit of gravity- through him all things fall. Not by wrath, but by laughter, do we slay. Come, let us slay the spirit of gravity!" - Nietzsche

    Legend : which that lives forever.. and has teh effect on other and tomorrow .

    Arise :-
    "He is asleep. Though his mettle was sorely tried,
    He lived, and when he lost his angel, died.
    It happened calmly, on its own,
    The way the night comes when day is done."

    Clockwork: a combination of ingenuity and engineering which, whilst effective in the short term, is entirely reliant for continued success on the conscientious attention and contribution of human beings. Hence its metaphorical use in expressions such as 'the deep water drilling is going like clockwork'.
