Act III:
Stage Manager: "We all know that something is eternal. And it ain't houses and it ain't names, and it ain't earth,
and it ain't even the stars…everybody knows in their bones that something is eternal and that something has to do
with human beings. All the greatest people ever lived have been telling us that for five thousand years and yet
you'd be surprised how people are always loosing hold of it. There is something deep down that is eternal
about every human being."
