Chapter 1 The Moon

But especially, my dear ones, beware of some day also becoming an inhabitant of this destitute celestial body! For this yellow-glimmering schoolhouse of life is a very cumbersome schoolhouse, and it would be better to die fourteen times in one day on earth than to live there for only one day, for the inhabitants there are much worse off than those who are buried here in the cemeteries. They do not know they are buried; but the inhabitants of the moon must live in their graves, and frequently they are buried there in their subterranean dwellings either by cave-ins or sudden flooding. – The Moon, Chapter 1, Paragraph 14
