A belief in hell and the knowledge that every ambition is doomed to frustration at the hands of a skeleton have never prevented the majority of human beings from behaving as though death were no more than an unfounded rumour. --Aldous Huxley
A man does not die of love or his liver or even of old age; he dies of being a man. --Percival Arland Ussher
All men think all men mortal, but themselves. --Edward Young
And I will show that nothing can happen more beautiful than death. --Walt Whitman
Annihilation has no terrors for me, because I have already tried it before I was born- a hundred million years- and I have suffered more in an hour, in this life, than I remember to have suffered in the whole hundred million years put together. There was a peace, a serenity, an absence of all sense of responsibility, an absence of worry, an absence of care, grief, perplexity; and the presence of a deep content and unbroken satisfaction in that hundred million years of holiday which I look back upon with a tender longing and with a grateful desire to resume, when the opportunity comes. --Mark Twain
As for death one gets used to it, even if it's only other people's death you get used to. --Enid Bagnold
