Heaven

“I feel within me that future life.  I am like a forest that has been razed;  the new shoots are stronger and brighter.  The nearer my approach to the end, the plainer is the sound of the immortal symphonies of worlds which invite me.  For half a century I have been translating my thoughts into prose and verse: history, philosophy, drama, romance, tradition, satire, ode, and song; all of these I have tried.  But I feel I haven’t given utterance to the thousandth part of what lies within me.  When I go to the grave I can say, as others have said, ‘My days work is done.’  But I cannot say, ‘My life is done.’  My work will recommence the next morning.  The tomb is not a blind alley, it is a thoroughfare.  It closes upon the twilight, but opens upon the dawn.”

~Victor Hugo
