"There’s a child in all of us that looks at cultural icons and thinks, ‘How could they die?’, because we’ve invested this sort of godlike immortality to them. Mortality is something that, once accepted, is not morbid. If anything, it makes your life richer – at least, that’s the philosophy I’m working to develop. I’m not ready to die at all; I’ve still got work to do. But an acceptance of it for all of us is a useful thing, because that’s the reality."
