But they for whom I am the supreme goal, who do all work renouncing self for me and meditate on me with single-hearted devotion, these I will swiftly rescue from death’s vast sea, for their consciousness has entered into me

Land and sea, weakness and decline are great separators, but death is the great divorcer for ever.–John Keats , English, Poet Quotes
Two babies were born on the same day at the same hospital. They lay there and looked at each other. Their families came and took them away. Eighty years later, by a bizarre coincidence, they lay in the same hospital, on their deathbeds, next to each other. One of them looked at the other and said, so. What did you think?
Steven Wright , American Humorist
Let us beware of saying that death is the opposite of life. The living being is only a species of the dead, and a very rare species.
Friedrich Nietzsche, German, Philosopher Quotes
For death begins with life’s first breath And life begins at touch of death
John Oxenham,, British, Journalist Quotes
Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death.
Rosalind Russell, American, Actress Quotes
Every parting is a form of death, as every reunion is a type of heaven.
Tryon Edwards, American, Theologian Quotes
We cannot imagine Life without Death, because the entire Life rests on Death, otherwise it wouldn’t exist. Thus we live, with every passing moment, our own Death! If our Life were a reflection in exactly what we are, this would mean that we mirror and we refer to ourselves, even though we refer to what we are not, coming to live in a parallel world which should show exactly like us so that it is not alien to us, thing that is impossible since there is God. God alienates us from ourselves? Since we are God’s shadow, how can we be alien to the God that creates this shadow? Are our own shadows aliens to us too?
Then we will become aware that just by returning to us, to that piece of ourselves, we will start to see Knowledge, but without using the eyes, to feel the Truth, but without using the senses, to grasp the Known because we found out the Unknown precisely because it is unknown and difficult to find, then we will become ourselves and we will look towards the stars in our inner sky by living what should have been the death of life or the life of the death within us.
–Sorin Cerin , philosopher
I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.—Leonardo da Vinci,Italian, Artist Quotes
Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there’s a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see.
Helen Keller , American, Author Quotes
