A dead thing can go with the stream
“A dead thing can go with the stream, but only a living thing can go against it.” ~ G. K. Chesterton

Pleasure is the beginning and the end of living happily.
Living is easy with eyes closed
Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see.
~ John Lennon
Try to escape the death
To go on living one must try to escape the death involved in perfection.
~ Hannah Arendt
