Is death the last sleep? No, it is the last and final awakening.
The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come.
We sometimes congratulate ourselves at the moment of waking from a troubled dream; it may be so the moment after death.
Life is eternal, and love is immortal, and death is only a horizon; and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.
A horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.
For death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity.
After your death you will be what you were before your birth.
The day which we fear as our last is but the birthday of eternity.
Death ends a life, not a relationship.
Someone has somewhere commented on the fact that millions long for immortality who don't know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.
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.
To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.
For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.
I believe there are two sides to the phenomenon known as death, this side where we live, and the other side where we shall continue to live. Eternity does not start ith death. We are in eternity now.
Death is no more than passing from one room into another.
Man would indeeded be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.
Death is simply a shedding of the physical body like the butterfly shedding its cocoon. It is a transition to a higher state of consciousness where you continue to perceive, to understand, to laugh, and to be able to grow.
When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'.
