There is such a thing as the perfect moment— time brings things of its own accord, we do not merely insert acts and phenomena into time.
It is the kind of idea that comes later to most people. Decades pass, one walks through a darkened room in which someone has died, and suddenly one recalls long forgotten words and the roar of the sea. It's as if those few words had captured the whole meaning of life, but afterwards one always talks about something else.
