There will be no one left to remember Aristotle or Cleopatra let alone you. Everything that we did and built and wrote and discovered will be forgotten. And all of this will have been for nothing. Maybe that time is coming soon, and maybe it is millions of years away, but even if we survive the collaps of our sun, we will not survive forever.

I believe we have a choice in this world about how to tell sad stories. On the one hand, you can sugarcoat it the way they do in movies and romance novels, where beautiful people learn beautiful lessons, where nothing is too messed up that can't be fixed with an apology and a Peter Gabriel song.
