“How rapid is our journey on this earth! At first we do not know how to live; soon we can no longer live; and in the interval which separates these two useless extremes, three-quarters of the time remaining to us is consumed by sleep, work, pain, constraint, and efforts of all kinds. Life is short, not so much because it lasts a short time as because we have almost none of that short time for savoring it. The moment of death may well be distant from that of birth, but life is always too short when this space is poorly filled.”

– Rousseau, Emile
