Epitaph for Arthur C. Clarke

Arthur C. Clarke was laid to rest yesterday in Sri Lanka. According to the story, his tombstone will soon be engraved with the following words...

Here lies Arthur C Clarke.

He never grew up and did not stop growing.

That's about the most succinct description of a life well-lived - and a life worth living - that I've ever read.
