Byblos... an open window on far-off misty times when man for the first time used the fecundity of the earth and for that very reason found himself spiritually engaged with the forces of life, death and renewal.
Sir Julian Huxley
British evolutionary biologist and internationalist
All those who seek to safeguard the forces of life, death and renovation that have characterized this city over several millennia have the right to our admiration and encouragement. More than ever before, the dead themselves live in the spirit and heart of those who survive, from year to year and from generation to generation. It is only right to preserve their names in history books, mausoleums, and foundations dedicated to their memory.
