he quote of Hemingway's sounds bleak doesn't it but it is actually pointing at a rather poignant truth...

Life kills the Ego while birthing the true Self, leaving us to die twice - which puts me in mind of Emily Dickinson's poem...

My life closed twice before its close (96)

Emily Dickinson

1830 –1886

My life closed twice before its close—

It yet remains to see

If Immortality unveil

A third event to me

So huge, so hopeless to conceive

As these that twice befell.

Parting is all we know of heaven,

And all we need of hell.
