„Let us learn from the lips of death the lessons of life. Let us live truly while we live, live for what is true and good and lasting.“

—  Felix Adler German American professor of political and social ethics, rationalist, and lecturer 1851 - 1933
Founding Address (1876), Life and Destiny (1913), Context: Let us learn from the lips of death the lessons of life. Let us live truly while we live, live for what is true and good and lasting. And let the memory of our dead help us to do this. For they are not wholly separated from us, if we remain loyal to them. In spirit they are with us. And we may think of them as silent, invisible, but real presences in our households.
