A Quote by Pablo Neruda on visitation, absence, commonality, and equality

I ask permission to be like everybody else,
like the rest of the world and what's more, like anybody else:
I beg you, with all my heart,
if we are talking about me, since we are talking about me,
please resist blasting the trumpet during my visit
and resign yourselves to my quiet absence.

Pablo Neruda (1904 - 1973)
