One more quote from an eighteen century ukrainian philosopher Hrygorii Skovoroda:

of death:

kto j na eya pl'uet ostruyu stal'?
tot chiya sovest' - kak chistiy hrustal'

who is to spit on her sharpened blade?
those with conscious - like virgin maid's...

In time when a cost of an human life's getting cheaper and cheaper - it's a great
a Maxima to follow and a great compass to get oriented in a moral chaos
of our modern time.
my translation from Ukrainian 2 English
