1. We must continue to go on living, even if we have experienced a great deal of adversity.
2. It is impossible to think objectively about your own death, and still have enough mental energy left over to guide you through the singing of a melody. Thoughts about your own death are so absorbing that it's impossible for anything else to occupy your thoughts at the same time. Everything is more trivial than death.
