What does it mean to be made for immortality? It means there is something inside you that is going to last for ever and ever and ever. In my apartment building there are all sorts of people; it’s a little microcosm of humanity. Sometimes I feel so sorry for the people because it seems that all they are doing is making money and more money – for what? You can’t take gold with you in your casket. Yet many of them only live for sheer pleasure; they forget that they are actually made for immortality.

Pleasure always comes to an end. My taste buds died a few months ago.
