Everything begins and ends. We’re good with beginnings, not so good with endings.
Time’s first function is to bring an end to things. Nevertheless, happy birthday!
Beginnings are easy. Not so, endings. Every ending is a seminar on surrender.
Saint Catherine: It’s heaven all the way to heaven.
Hesiod: Make a bad beginning and you will contend with troubles ever after.
Therein: The difference between a good decision and a bad one.
