Paul Newman in The Hustler (1961)
It’s been one year since the most influential event of all time.
SANTIAGO RUSIÑOL, Female Figure, Paris, oil on canvas, 1894
Cowards die many times before their deaths,
The valiant never taste of death but once.
Of all the wonders that I yet have heard,
It seems to me most strange that men should fear,
Seeing that death, a necessary end,
Will come when it will come.
