Don’t Fear the Reaper

Lunch atop a Skyscraper

Cowards die many times before their deaths;
The valiant never taste of death but once.
Of all the wonders that I yet have heard,
It seems to me most strange that men should fear,
Seeing that death, a necessary end,
Will come when it comes.

William Shakespeare
Julius Caesar (1599)
