[reading from John Donne] All mankind is one volume. When one man dies, a chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language. And every chapter must be translated. God employs several translators; some piece are translated by age, some by sickness, some by war, some by justice. But God's hand shall bind up all our scattered leaves again, in the library where every book shall live open to one another.
