„One goes down to death, and it leaves a mark on one forever.“

—  R. A. Lafferty American writer 1914 - 2002

On death and the nightly resurrection of the slain on Valhal, Ch. 2
Space Chantey (1968)
Context: Death is for a long time. Those of shallow thought say that it is forever. There is, at least, a long night of it. There is the forgetfulness and the loss of identity. The spirit, even as the body, is unstrung and burst and scattered. One goes down to death, and it leaves a mark on one forever.

In its story lives are pages
Fill them up, may ours turn slow.
