To every thing there is a season, and a

     time to every purpose under the 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 build up;

A time to weep, and a time to laugh;

A time to mourn, and a time to dance.

   (Eccles. 3:1-4)
