Cheery Thoughts of Death For A Monday Morning

Millennia passed before I was born. Millennia will pass after I am dead. Thus my life is a spark between two vast and identical pools of darkness: the darkness existing before my birth and the darkness following my death.

Doesn't it astound you how much we dread the latter darkness and how indifferent we are to the first?

- Vladimir Nabokov
