The idea of immortality, that like a sea has ebbed and flowed in the human heart , with its countless waves of hope and fear , beating against the shores and rocks of time and fate, was not born of any book , nor of any creed, nor of any religion .

It is the rainbow Hope shining upon the tears of grief .
