February 7, 1998 - June 1, 2006
That time runs out before one's life work is completed by no means makes it worthless. The fragmentary quality of life does not detract from its meaning. It is not the length of its span that we can ever draw conclusions as to life's meaningfulness. We cannot, after all, judge a biography by its length, by the number of pages in it; we must judge by the richness of its content. The exuberant life of one who has died young certainly has more content and meaning than the existence of some long-lived dullard.
Sometimes the "unfinisheds" are among the most beautiful symphonies.
