"The most terrible thing about death is that a lifetime’s reading is laid to waste."

I've never been able to find out who said this, but it's long been a favorite quote. Does anyone happen to know?

Héctor "Sicut palea" (Santo Tomás de Aquino)

P.D: In the "World Peace" group there are more quotes.

Kay | 8 comments You mean in (what I'd call) the Brahms' Requiem sense, "Denn alles Fleisch, es ist wie Gras"? (For all flesh is like grass?)

Thanks for the "World Peace" tip.

Héctor I wrote this quote because it is very similar to its. "As dung, waste": it would have been the answer of santo Tomás de Aquino at the end of his life when asked to him what was his work, his Theological Summa. (Thanks to Jacques Lacan)

P.D: To Walt Disney had not liked these quotes, Kay...
