The Farthest Shore - Ursula K. Le Guin

This quote was added by user396971
You will die. You will not live forever. Nor will any man or anything. Nothing is immortal. But only to us is it given to know that we must die. And that is a great gift: The gift of selfhood. For we have only what we know we must lose, what we are willing to lose... That selfhood which is our torment, and our treasure, and our humanity, does not endure. It changes; it is gone, a wave on the sea.
