Maurice Maeterlinck Quote

All our knowledge merely helps us to die a more painful death than the animals that know nothing. A day will come when science will turn upon its error and no longer hesitate to shorten our woes. A day will come when it will dare and act with certainty; when life, grown wiser, will depart silently at its hour, knowing that it has reached its term.


Our Eternity, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
