"brief candles" by aldous huxley
"brief candles" takes its title from a line in william shakespeare's macbeth, from macbeth's famous soliloquy: "out, out, brief candle! life's but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."
