"The flesh surrenders itself, he thought. Eternity takes back its own. Our bodies stirred these waters briefly, danced with a certain intoxication before the love of life and self, dealt with a few strange ideas, then submitted to the instruments of Time.
What can we say of this? I occurred. I am not... yet, I occurred."
Paul MuadDib Atreides (from Frank Herberts "Dune Messiah")
