Ibn Ḥazm of Cordoba, quoted in Christopher Dawson (1889-1970), Medieval Essays
(1954; rpt. Washington: The Catholic University of America Press, 2002), p. 114, with his note (accents added):
Thou weepest for the dead. Let him be. He is at
peace. Weep rather for the living. He is more worthy of your tears. The
dead man rests in his tomb: there is no need to mourn over his lot. But
as for the living, who perishes every day at the hands of injustice, there
is none to comfort him.9
