| ||"A man's death makes everything certain about him. Of course, secrets may die with him. And of course, a hundred years later somebody looking through some papers may discover a fact which throws a totally different light on his life and of which all the people who attended his funeral were ignorant. Death changes the facts qualitatively but not quantitatively. One does not know more facts about a man because he is dead. But what one already knows hardens and becomes definite. We cannot hope for ambiguities to be clarified, we cannot hope for further change, we cannot hope for more. We are now the protagonists and we have to make up our minds." -- John Berger || |
| ||"We cannot banish dangers, but we can banish fears. We must not demean life by standing in awe of death." -- David Sarnoff || |
| ||"When I die I'm going to dance first in all the galaxies... I'm gonna play and dance and sing." -- Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, On Death And Dying || |
| ||Ancient Egyptians believed that upon death they would be asked two questions and their answers would determine whether they could continue their journey in the afterlife. The first question was, "Did you bring joy?"The second was, "Did you find joy?" -- Leo Buscaglia || |
