" Because we do not know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well,and yet things only happen a certain number of times. And a very small number really; how many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, an afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps 4 or 5 times more. Perhaps not even that. How many times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps 20, and yet it all seems limitless. "
