    “In Unug people are dying, and souls are full of distress. People are lost — that fills me with dismay. I lean out over the city wall: bodies in the water make the river almost overflow. That is what I see: that people die thus, which fills me with despair; that the end of life is unavoidable; that the grave, the all-powerful underworld, will spare no one; that no one is tall enough to block off the underworld; that no one is broad enough to cover over the underworld — the boundary that a man cannot cross at the final end of life.”

    Gilgamesh
