leaning over me with the traditional greeting, “You have come to suffer. Suffer and endure.” If children were born able to understand such a salutation, they would all squirm back into the womb, dwindle back into the seed. No doubt we did come into this world to suffer, to endure; what human being ever did not?

A trifling pleasure--so small, so simple, so ordinary--but never to be known again.

From your expressions, reverend scribes, I take it that you do not comprehend the meaning of the ueyquin ayquic, “the age of never.” No, no, my lords, it does not signify an age of any specific number of years. It comes early to some people, later to others. Considering that I was then forty and five years old, well into my middle years, I had eluded its clutch for longer than most men. The ueyquin ayquic is the age when a man begins to mutter to himself, “Ayya, the hills never seemed so steep before …” or “Ayya, my back never used to give me these twinges of pain …” or “Ayya, I never found a gray hair in my head before now….
