That he would die, and that his children would die, that everyone was subject to the laws of entropy, no longer bothered him. He had no desire to live forever. If life isn't meaningful now, in the present moment, it won't become meaningful by being prolonged indefinitely. Death, in fact, is a condition of meaning. …Most of the people that clamor for immortality don't know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
-- Robert Hellenga, The Fall of a Sparrow --
Have a great Wednesday!
