Sleepy Hollow. -- The blazing evidence of immortality is our
dissatisfaction with any other solution.
All great natures love stability.
Our fear of death is like our fear that summer will be short, but when we
have had our swing of pleasure, our fill of fruit, and our swelter of heat, we
say we have had our day; and rest of brain and affection please.
-Emerson, July 1855, Selections from Ralph Waldo Emerson, 326
