Maybe that's because Dumbledore himself was also one of those people who wanted to be Master of Death. I feel it is a warning for future wizards and witches not to taunt Death or dabble in necromancy, but, like the youngest brother, try to prolong one's Death by the seventh sense-common sense-and when your time comes, "treat death as an old friend, walking away together to the next life as equals.".

Me too! But I don't think Beedle would have a tale like that in his book. His tales are more dark, mysterious and sinister, not at all what one would expect a tale like Grumbly the Grubby Goat to be in.
