At first it might take a few moments to even work out how these groups of words in this quote from Charles Darwin are connected, it’s almost as if there’s the possibility of jumping to the wrong clause because you could kind of see the link.

What we see here is Charles Darwin almost writing his conclusion about life because he said this, near the very end of his own. And there’s a heaviness to his face, because it’s almost like a warning, saying that whatever you say or do in life, make sure it’s not what you may regret when you look back in your final hour.
