Tom Stoppard

“We must be born with an intuition of mortality. Before we know the word for it. Before we know that there are words. Out we come, bloodied and squalling, with the knowledge that for all the points of the compass, there's only one direction. And time is its only measure.”


Tom Stoppard, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
