Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
- Alfred Lord Tennyson

When the Angel of Death approaches you, it is terrible. When it reaches you, it is bliss.
- Sufi proverb
All of us must make that voyage some day. For some, it will be many years from now. For others, their ships are even now weighing anchor.
