About this product
- DescriptionMan is the only animal that contemplates death, and also the only animal that shows any doubt of its finality. -- William Ernest Hocking. Everyone thinks about death from time to time, even if one really expects it to happen to them. In this book you'll find a wide-ranging collection of observations, conjectures, and commentary about death, spoken or written by the famous, the near-famous, and the t-so-famous. If I were a maker of books, I would make a register, with comments, of various deaths. He who would teach men to die would teach them to live. -- Montaigne.
- Author BiographyPaul Erland is a writer living near Nashville, and the only one within a 50-mile radius who's never written a song, an oversight he will rectify in his next novel, Jesus of Nashville. He has always been fascinated by death, and has come to believe that it may even one day happen to him. Erland has written for newspapers and magazines, enjoys reading, crossword puzzles and word games, and is a lover of quotations. He will soon reissue his Cynic's Almanac under a different title. He has also written a novel, The Misforgotten.
