Thinking of my long-ago posting days, when I looked at the cultures of life and death, I came across this quote:
"It is not enough to recall that there are cultures of death and that from one culture to another, at the crossing of borders, death changes face, meaning, language, or even body . . . One must go further: culture itself, culture in general, is essentially, before anything, even a priori, the culture of death . . . The very concept of culture may seem to be synonymous with the culture of death, as if the expression 'culture of death' were ultimately a pleonasm or a tautology."
Extra points for identifying the author (not hard).
Or this one: "There is more than one way to make a body invisible."
