Invisible Sun

Christine notes, "I stumbled across Thomas Browne while researching the source of an uncited quotation in my father's papers: http://penelope.uchicago.edu/hydrionoframes/hydrio5.html "

" But man is a Noble Animal, splendid in ashes, and pompous in the grave, solemnizing Nativities and Deaths with equall lustre, nor omitting Ceremonies of bravery, in the infamy[25] of his nature.

Life is a pure flame, and we live by an invisible Sun within us. "
