Any way you look at it

“All stories, if continued far enough, end in death, and he is no true-story teller who would keep that from you.  Especially do all stories of monogamy end in death, and your man who is monogamous while he often lives most happily, dies in the most lonely fashion.  There is no lonelier man in death, except the suicide, than that man who has lived many years with a good wife then outlived her.  If two people love each other, there can be no happy end to it.” – Ernest Hemingway, Death in the Afternoon
