Are you afraid of dying? It is something all men before you have done, and that all men will do. Have you ever made love to a truly great woman? And during that lovemaking, didn’t you for at least a moment lose all fear of death? Great love making is a respite from death. Cowardice comes from not loving, or not loving well, which is the same thing. When a man is brave and true and looks death squarely in the face like someone just before the moment of passing, it is because they have loved with sufficient passion to push death out of their minds until it returns as it does to all men, and then you must make passionate love again.
