You are now like a yellowed leaf. Already Yama’s minions stand near. You stand at the door to departure but have yet to provide for the journey. Make an island for yourself! Work quickly! Be wise! With impurities all blown away, unblemished, you’ll reach the divine realm of the noble ones. – Dhammapada [18]
