Skulls, Eyes, and Sockets

Once again I was moved by this man's writing and wisdom this morning:

"The old natural philosopher, who was usually both physician and philosopher, pondered with the skull upon his table. Not only did he see death from the viewpoint of life. He viewed life through the sockets of the skull.

"Life and death come into the world together; the eyes and the sockets which hold them are born at the same moment. The moment I am born I am old enough to die. As I go on living I am dying."--James Hillman, Pg.59, Suicide and The Soul
