“Before he died he asked his wife’s forgiveness and forgave her for the cooper.
He also took leave of his son and grandchildren, and died sincerely glad that
he was relieving his son and daughter-in-law of the burden of having to
feed him, and that he was now really passing from this life of which
he was weary into that other life which every year and every hour grew
clearer and more desirable to him. Whether he is better or worse off
there where he awoke after his death, whether he was disappointed or
found there what he expected, we shall all soon learn.”
Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910), “Master and Man”, 1895.
