"After all, to the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure. You know, the Stone was really not such a wonderful thing. As much money and life as you could want! The two things most human beings would choose above all - the trouble is, humans have a knack of choosing precisely those things which are worse for them. - Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore"
