Yet man dies not whilst the world, at once his mother and his monument, remains. His name is lost, indeed, but the breath he breathed still stirs the pine-tops on the mountains, the sound of the words he spoke yet echoes on through space; the thoughts his brain gave birth to we have inherited to-day; his passions are our cause of life; the joys and sorrows that he knew are our familiar friends--the end from which he fled aghast will surely overtake us also!

Truly the universe is full of ghosts, not sheeted churchyard spectres, but the inextinguishable elements of individual life, which having once been, can never die, though they blend and change, and change again for ever.

H. Rider Haggard

One of the most popular writers of the late 1800's and early 1900's. British by birth and his character Allan Quatermain was the inspiration for Indiana Jones series. Basically he created the genre of the lost world. He was an adventure writer and is sometimes lumped into the group of early science fiction writers. She has supernatural themes in it.
