Excerpt from Bohemian Glass
OF what merchandise Life has despoiled us, good friends, we have not vouchsafed to you; nor will: for these things must be ours. And of our hopes, which lie with the future of our strength - what should we say to you of these? But to stay you in an... unequal contest and to give you comradeship when brother knows no more the face of brother; to prove solace to you in the hour before the dawn, we thus made stead, fast the memory of such things as Life gave to us by a free gift. Read, knowing that what is shall no wise help you, and what may come shall be as nought, but that what has been has remained. Read, remembering that as all Life shall be Death, so was this Death Life. For, knowing what should come, and how man of his frailty follows his deeds into the darkness, we hid these things against your coming. From the sorrow of our own hearts hid we them that they might live: and from the hardness of our lives did we put them away.
