“Human beings do not live forever, Reuven. We live less than the time it takes to blink an eye, if we measure our lives against eternity. So it may be asked what value is there to a human life. There is so much pain in the world. What does it mean to have to suffer so much if our lives are nothing more than the blink of an eye?

I learned a long time ago, Reuven, that a blink of an eye in itself is nothing. But the eye that blinks, that is something. A span of life is nothing. But the man who lives that span, he is something. He can fill that tiny span with meaning, so its quality is immeasurable though its quantity may be insignificant. Do you understand what I am saying? A man must fill his life with meaning, meaning is not automatically given to life.

It is hard work to fill one's life with meaning. That I do not think you understand yet. A life filled with meaning is worthy of rest. I want to be worthy of rest when I am no longer here.”
Chaim Potok, The Chosen

“My alma mater was books, a good library.... I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity.”

Frank Herbert
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Frank Herbert, Dune

Then something unexpected happens. Having graduated, she decides to stay in London, coming back home and be obligated to the strictness of her parents is just to much. Now, denounced by her family and finally free there is a time to explore and hope. But not all of the challenges are resolved just yet. There is another bunch of secrets that only wait to reappear, both prophetic dreams and dreams of past lives start to reappear, together with horror filled dreams of sorrow, sadness abuse and abandonment, and now the question lies, why are they so real, are they really what happened, what will be seen in the dreams again when she will go to sleep next time?
