For him who is joined to all the living there is hope; a living dog is better than a dead lion.
The living are conscious that death will come to them, but the dead are not conscious of anything, and they no longer have a reward, because there is no memory of them.
Their love and their hate and their envy are now ended; and they have no longer a part for ever in anything which is done under the sun.
