brachot 58

the blessings on all the weird and wonderful things in the world.
including the diversity of people who secretly fit together to make the world as weird and as wonderful as it is.

and despite how weird and wonderful we are, we can be reduced to a pile of bones with a withering glance.

(amongst the discussions for blessings over seeing 600,000 people, kings, sages, etc there are 3 stories of punishment by death. for english translation of this talmud page see here)
