After Death.  It is only long after the death of a man that we find it inconceivable that he should be missed — in the case of really great men, only after decades.  Those who are honest usually think when any one dies that he is not much missed, and that the pompous funeral oration is a piece of hypocrisy.  Necessity first teaches the necessariness of an individual, and the proper epitaph is a belated sigh.
