Dying at the Right Time

[James] Dean died before he could fail, before he lost his hair or his boyish figure, before he grew up.

 

One must discontinue being feasted upon when one tasteth best; that is known by those who want to be long loved.

— Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra
 

Many die too late, and some die too early. Yet strange soundeth the precept: ‘Die at the right time!’

— Ibid.
