Quote of the week

This from Byron's post Fearless Service III. For me, it captured perfectly and instantly what it feels like to be human

We are all dying, giving birth astride a grave.

Well, only some of us give birth. And part of the time we die within a birthing chamber.

Thanks for the link! Though as I mentioned in my comments, it's not my quote. It's from Samuel Beckett's immortal play Waiting for Godot. For the context, see here.
