The world is so exquisite, with so much love and moral depth, that there is no reason to deceive ourselves with pretty stories for which there's little good evidence. Far better, it seems to me, in our vulnerability, is to look Death in the eye and to be grateful every day for the brief but magnificent opportunity that life provides.

- from Billions & Billions: Thoughts on Life and Death at the Brink of the Millennium, a book by Carl Sagan
