A man's death makes everything certain about him. Of course, secrets may die with him. And of course, a hundred years later somebody looking through some papers may discover a fact which throws a totally different light on his life and of which all the people who attended his funeral were ignorant. Death changes the facts qualitatively but not quantitatively. One does not know more facts about a man because he is dead. But what one already knows hardens and becomes definite. We cannot hope for ambiguities to be clarified, we cannot hope for further change, we cannot hope for more. We are now the protagonists and we have to make up our minds.

It is as natural to die as to be born; and to a little infant, perhaps, the one is as painful as the other.

Despise not death, but welcome it, for nature wills it like all else.

Every day people are born and people die. Human beings come into this world and leave it - most without their names being immortalized in any history books.

And some of these people, some very special people, are not forgotten even by those who harldy knew them.
