Pass through this brief patch of time in harmony with nature,

and come to your final resting place gracefully,

just as a ripened olive might drop,

praising the earth that nourished in and grateful to the tree that gave it growth.

—Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, 4.48.2 (resource) Ryan Holiday, The 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living
