you are alive. so live!
“you are mortal: it is the mortal way. you attend the funeral, you bid the dead farewell. you grieve. then you continue with your life. and at times the fact of her absence will hit you like a blow to the chest, and you will weep. but this will happen less and less as time goes on.
she is dead.
you are alive.
– dream to his son, orpheus (brief lives)
