Day 655

Joseph I. Stein

October 15th, 2013

"While yet in love with life, he passed to silence and pathetic dust; yet it may be best just in the sunniest hour of all the voyage, while eager winds are kissing every sail, to dash against the unseen rock and in an instant hear the billows roar above a sunken ship. Were every one to whom he did some loving service to bring a blossom to his grave, he would sleep to night beneath a wilderness of flowers."

(Adapted from a eulogy given by Robert G. Ingersoll, "the Great Agnostic", for his brother.)
