Khan, Pir Vilayat

Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
La Fontaine, Jean De

There was something awesome in the thought of the solitary mortal standing by the open window and summoning in from the gloom outside the spirits of the nether world.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Cervantes, Miguel De
