Interesting Discoveries

Death is our friend precisely because it brings us into absolute and passionate presence with all that is here, that is natural, that is love,” - this quote by Rilke starts yet another beautifully written and illustrated post of Maria Popova at her blog brainpickings. This time she looks at the subject of our mortality through the prism of the children book “Duck, Death and the Tulip.” If you are interested in literature, history, philosophy, or art and haven't discovered her blog, you certainly should take a look.
