"There are two absolutes; an inescapable pattern in the entire existence of Human kind:


the awareness of life,
the arrival of death.


Of the two, death is the most mysterious."

-Adrienne Nater











To himself everyone is immortal;
     he may know that he is going to die, but he can never know that he is dead.  ~Samuel Butler
