Death

I don't believe in an after life, although I am bringing a change of underwear.

Publicidad

Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, which is the only fact we have.

James Baldwin (1924-1987) African-American writer.

As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.

He was exhaled; his great Creator drew His spirit, as the sun the morning dew.

Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.

Death gives us sleep, eternal youth, and immortality.
