To Those Who Mourn

(an excerpt)

For that is the real truth,

man is a soul and has a body

The body is not the man; it is only

the clothing of the man.

What you call death is the laying aside

of a worn-out garment, and it is no more

the end of the man than it is the end of you

when you remove your coat.

Therefore you have not lost your friends’

you have only lost sight of the cloak in which you were

accustomed to see him.

the cloak is gone, but the man who

wore it is not:

Surely it is the man that you love and not

the garment
