Who said a famous quote that is close to "He who is unable to die and be reborn is but a poor traveller on this earth"?

Asked by crisedwards (329points) December 29th, 2011

This quote is famous, and been in my head for years, so maybe paraphrased during that time. Many Google Searches have proven fruitless. Brecht? Goethe? It’s driving me nuts that I can’t find the correct quote.

@crisedwards I think that your version sounds cooler than the original.
