Observe how fleeting and paltry is all mortal life; yesterday a drop of mucus, tomorrow a mummy or handful of ashes. And spend these fleeting moments on earth as Nature would have you spend them, and then go to your rest with a good grace, as an olive falls in its season, with a blessing for the earth that bore it and a thanksgiving to the tree that gave it life.
