The cradle rocks above the abyss, and common sense tells us that our existence is but a brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness. Although identical twins, man, as a rule, views the parental abyss with more calm than the one he is heading for (at some forty-five hundred heartbeats an hour).
- Vladimir Nabokov, Speak, Memory
