Quote of the Day
This life, which had been the tomb of his virtue and of his honour, is but a walking shadow; a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
A tomb now suffices him for whom the whole world was not sufficient.
Alexander the Great

Gus Van Sant
Let there be no inscription upon my tomb; let no man write my epitaph: no man can write my epitaph.
