"Something has spoken to me in the night... and told me that I shall die, I know not where. Saying: '(Death is) to lose the earth you know for greater knowing; to lose the life you have, for greater life; to leave the friends you loved, for greater loving; to find a land more kind than home, more large than earth.' " -Thomas Wolfe
