Maurice Maeterlinck. (1862–1949)

      The future is a world limited by ourselves; in it we discover only what concerns us and, sometimes, by chance, what interests those whom we love the most.
          Joyzelle. Act i.

      Men’s weaknesses are often necessary to the purposes of life.
          Joyzelle. Act ii.

      All our knowledge merely helps us to die a more painful death than the animals that know nothing. A day will come when science will turn upon its error and no longer hesitate to shorten our woes. A day will come when it will dare and act with certainty; when life, grown wiser, will depart silently at its hour, knowing that it has reached its term.
          Our Eternity.
