    لا يوجد علاج للولادة والموت باستثناء الاستمتاع بالفاصل الزمني. الخلفية المظلمة التي لوازم الموت تبرز ألوان الحياة الرقيقة بكل نقاوةها.

    il n'y a de remède à la naissance et à la mort que pour profiter de l'intervalle. le fond sombre que fournit la mort fait ressortir les tendres couleurs de la vie dans toute leur pureté.
