Life & Death

The 18th century writer Samuel Johnson was once asked, "I wonder what pleasure men can take in making beasts of themselves?" he answered: "He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man."

"Whoever rightly understands and celebrates death, at the same time magnifies life."
Rilke
