I heed no premonitions, nor do I fear signs
Or calumny or poison: I do not flee.
The world holds no death.
Immortal life is for us all.
One should not fear death at seventeen, nor at seventy.
Only reality and light exist.
There is no death nor darkness in this world.
We are already on the ocean’s shore
And I am one who hauls the net
That gathers immortality in its folds …
It is sufficient that I am immortal,
That my blood may flow from one age to the next
To gain a faithful corner, warm and sound
I would gladly give my life, if it were needed
But still the silver needle flies
And draws me like a thread on its wide journey.
Andrei Tarkovsky. Mirror 1974
