    Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, which is the only fact we have.

    And the people they did say, for many miles away,
    ‘Twas the outlaws Frank and Jesse James.
    —Unknown. Jesse James (l. 6–8)
