also dismal.

What we do here

It's a show

immune to the spotlight.

Can I offer you


Take a drink.

Tell me

You're afraid to die?

And you?


No, no I do not have

fear of dying.

Today I consider the death

as an absolute necessity

Death is painful

Death is something

something subtle.

If we suffer

at birth

the day we

came into the world

then it is normal

to suffer in the end.

It's like a transfiguration

as if we solve

an equation.

Have you ever seen

a woman give birth?

his face is deformed.

full of sweat and anguish.

But strangely,

it is also punctuated


You see, somewhere Raphael

I feel an affinity,

a communion of our spirits.

See his eyes a

horrible death can be

a great source of inspiration

for those who remain.

Thus they see how

we can be tough

once the time comes.

resist death, is to

absolute courage.

It is a delicious torment.


Forgive me.

But lorqu'on sees death

appear finally

before us

we must

welcome him wholeheartedly.

It seems today that

the closer you get

of death in our lifetime

plus the passage into nothingness

are effortless.

And allowed starting

the most beautiful gifts

we can offer to a close

the courage to face death.

And this is the finest and largest

contribution that a man can

made to another man.

Whatever ...

How will you pay me for that?

Well, if you want to be realistic

the amount will depend

Your courage and

your good will.

Plus you'll

able to hold

mentally and physically

Plus the sum will be important.

Yes, I know, it's always

how to say

offensive, injurious to

give value to life.

But we must make

unto Caesar what is Caesar's

And unto God what is God's.


I say $ 50,000

I give you one third
