  4. The Future The future: time's excuseto frighten us; too vasta project, too large a morselfor the heart's mouth.Future, who won't wait for you?Everyone is going there.It suffices you to deepenthe absence that we are.

  5. Analysis • The unknown scares every one • depicts the idea that the future is too large to predict, control, or comprehend • Why is this part posed as a question? -Is it sarcasm? Everyone is going, and when tomorrow comes you’ll be there anyway. Will we move with time or stay in the past because it’s what we know? • The future continues, the present grows, memories deepen, and a little more of us is gone everyday, -the more you know the more you understand how much you don’t know The future: time's excuseto frighten us; too vasta project, too large a morselfor the heart's mouth.Future, who won't wait for you?Everyone is going there.It suffices you to deepenthe absence that we are.
