“It was then that for the first time it came on me that when a man dies, an unknown world passes away….The hard bone of his skull was in a sense an old treasure chest; and I could not know what coloured stuffs, what images of festivities, what vestiges, obsolete and vain in this desert, had here escaped the shipwreck.”

– Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

from Wind, Sand, and Stars
