Sapientia Avis Magni

Traveller, do you not know how a poet can live beyond the grave? You stand and read this verse: it is I, then, who am speaking. Reading this work aloud, your living voice is mine.
– St. Possidius, Life of St. Augustine, 31.8, citing an unknown pagan poet

A note, it’s like leaving a little piece of you behind to talk to people when you can’t be there.
– Big Bird, Sesame Street, episode 3325
