One thought on “The Literary Week – Day 6

  1. Everybody will die, but very few people want to be reminded of that fact.

    All people will die, but few people want to think of that truth.

    Unfortunately without infinitives or a word meaning “to remind”, I can’t translate this in a way that preserves the nuance of “to be reminded”, with its unstated but implied causal role. I will probably coin a word for “to remind” later on, and therefore solve that issue. But for tonight, this is enough.
