Quote, Unquote 01: A man comes into the world

A man comes into the world with his hands pushed into fists, as if he wants to say, “All this world is mine.” A man leaves this world with his palms open, as if to say, “Look, I take nothing with me.” — The Talmud

I have never realized a baby comes to the world with its fists clenched and I have not watched closely the hands of a dead man.
