Final thoughts
  • It is a myth to think death is just for the old.
    Death is there from the very beginning
  • (Herman Feifel, in Cassingham, 2004)
  • "What we call the beginning is often the end. And
    to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is
    where we start from."
  • (T.S. Eliot)
