When a man dies, his body is cremated.
Otherwise it would decompose and stink.
When an event is past, do not keep it and cherish it in your mind.
Cremate it and forget it: otherwise it will decompose in the mind and stink.
The very movement of investigation saves us from sorrow and hence fear.
The mind has an extraordinary faculty of registering only what it is prepared to accept or, on the other hand, that which shocks.
