"On the Feeling of Immortality in Youth"

"We quaff the cup of life with eager haste without draining it, instead of which it only overflows the brim—objects press around us, filling the mind with their magnitude and with the throng of desires that wait upon them, so that we have no room for the thoughts of death." --William Hazlitt

Quant'e' bella giovinezza
che si fugge tuttavia!

Chi vuol esser lieto, sia:
del doman non c'e' certezza.
