The problem should not be how to live glamorously so that you make others envy you, but, how to live gloriously or better still, how to die gloriously! So gloriously that you are not put to the humiliation of dying again. When you know that thieves have broken into your neighbor's house, you become extra-cautious and every night, before you retire, you examine every lock and bolt in the house. When you know that death has carried away a victim for the house next door, why do you not examine yourselves whether you are equipped to meet it, when it comes to you.
