There is something inside all of us that yearns not for reason but for mystery, not for penetrating clear thought but for the whisperings of the irrational, not for science but for wizardry disguised as science, not for rationally founded influence but for magic.
Death is something not only mysterious but a great act of purgation. That which continues in a repetitive pattern is degeneration. The pattern may vary according to country, according to climate, according to circumstance, but it is a pattern. Moving in any pattern brings about a continuity and that continuity is part of the degenerating process of man. When there is an ending of continuity, something new can take place. One can understand it instantly if one has understood the whole movement of thought, of fear, hate, love - then one can grasp the significance, instantly, of what death is.
Abilities wither under faultfinding, blossom with encouragement.

Ethel Thayer, On Golden Pond (1981)
