(E) Life is not a book to read twice
 
From the dead to the living 
 
The only good thing remaining in your world is the memory of what it was in 
my day, and before : so that I am far from chiding you for spending your 
life, as far as possible, in our society, by rehearsing the memorials which 
remain of us, and which enable you, even in your day, to employ your time 
humanly, in the study of wisdom. I did that, too, with intense zeal ; but 
the earth was then propitious, and my soul was mighty, and every other art 
and virtue was open to me, as well as the wisdom of the ancients. 
 
Life is not a book to read twice : and you cannot exchange the volume 
fortune puts in your hand for another on a nobler theme or by a better poet. 
In reading it you should not look ahead, or you will skip too much. 
 
(Santayana's Avicenna)
