‘And if I go,
while you’re still here…
know that I live on,
vibrating to a different measure,
behind a thin veil you cannot see through.
You will not see me,
so you must have faith.
I wait for the time when we can soar together again,
both aware of each other.
Until then, live your lie to its fullest.
And when you need me,
just whisper my name in your heart,
…I will be there.

Stephen Colbert to guest Keanu Reeves:
“What do you think happens to us when we die Keanu Reeves?”
“I know the ones who love us will miss us.”
The Greek tragedian Aeschylus wrote:
God, whose law it is that he who learns must suffer.
And even in our sleep, pain that cannot forget,
falls drop by drop upon the heart,
and in our despair, against our will,
come wisdom through the awful grace of God.
