 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground;
for out of it wast thou taken: 
for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.  
-Genesis 3:19

 As we fall to death and decay the dust of our bodies is the fuel for new life.

 It is a secret of the world that all things subsist and so not die, but only retire a little from sight and afterwards return again… Nothing is dead; men feign themselves dead, and endure mock funerals and mournful obituaries, and there they stand looking out of the window, sound and well, in some new and strange disguise.
- Emerson

Happy New Year!
