Oliver Sacks On The Sabbath

1a6c5-img_0334Oliver Sacks   (July 09, 1933 – August 30, 2015)

And now, weak, short of breath, my once-firm muscles melted away by cancer, I find my thoughts, increasingly, not on the supernatural or spiritual, but on what is meant by living a good and worthwhile life — achieving a sense of peace within oneself. I find my thoughts drifting to the Sabbath, the day of rest, the seventh day of the week, and perhaps the seventh day of one’s life as well, when one can feel that one’s work is done, and one may, in good conscience, rest.

🎂Happy Birthday  Oliver Sacks (July 09, 1933 – August 30, 2015) In Memoriam 🌹
