Cary's epitaph ( ... less than 1,144 weeks left now .... ) will read:
===> ENTROPY sux! <===
Burn your bridges behind you,
so the bastards won't catch up with you!
Exercise your imagination, not your expectations
Life is the most fearsome thing you will ever know
If life is a pit stop on the long road of existence,
why is the service so bad?

-- Theodore Roosevelt to poet Edwin Arlington Robinson.

Put all your eggs in one basket, and then watch that basket! - attributed to Robert A. Heinlein
"The Earth is the Cradle of mankind, but one does not live in the cradle forever." - Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, 1895
"No plan, no matter how well designed, ever survives the first shot." - Old military aphorism
I suspect that if humankind had never known sex, we would have invented it anyway: the women to celebrate friendship, and the men to celebrate themselves. - Gabriel Rusack
All fled, all done,
So lift me on the pyre;
The feast is over
The lamps expire
- Robert E. Howard,
June 11, 1936,
last typed composition, moments before his suicide, at age 30
