Thought For The Day

Today’s quotes surround the subject of death, a topic I wrote about yesterday when it comes to the idea of whether death can be prevented. I found much connection with the following quotes to help in discussing this subject…

“When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.” (Tecumseh) 

“All deaths are sudden, no matter how gradual the dying may be.” (Michael McDowell)

“Death is beautiful when seen to be a law, and not an accident.” (Henry David Thoreau)

“Death is not the opposite of life, but a part of it.” (Haruki Murakami)

“How can you treat death so lightly, she asks. ‘Because it happens,’ he replies. ‘It is inevitable. I do not mourn the falling of a leaf or the breaking of a wave. I do not sorrow for a shooting star as it burns itself up in the atmosphere. So why should I?” (Roger Zelazny)

Peace, love, light, and joy,
