Johann Wolfgang von Goethe about death (“The Sorrows of Young Werther”, 1774) - Naturalists tell of a noble race of horses that instinctively open a vein with their teeth, when heated and exhausted by a long course, in order to breathe more freely. I am often tempted to open a vein, to procure for myself everlasting liberty.
