There is no end. At death, we transcend. We are just actors; we come and go. We must do our part, the best way we can. And we must enjoy the show!
Life may be painful, but death is not. In fact, it liberates us from pain!
It is not I who will die, it is me who will not be…it is not ‘i’ who will die, only the body will not be. The goal is for ‘me’ – the mind and ego to be free.
There’s not a day that William and I don’t wish that she was… we don’t wish that she was still around, and we wonder what kind of a mother she would be now, and what kind of a public role she would have, and what a difference she would be making.

Why do dying people never shed tears?
– Max Frisch
It’s true, I am afraid of dying. I am afraid of the world moving forward without me, of my absence going unnoticed, or worse, being some natural force propelling life on. Is it selfish? Am I such a bad person for dreaming of a world that ends when I do? I don’t mean the world ending with respect to me, but every set of eyes closing with mine.
– Jonathan Safran Foer
Perhaps the best cure for the fear of death is to reflect that life has a beginning as well as an end. There was a time when we were not: this gives us no concern. Why, then, should it trouble us that a time will come when we shall cease to be?

I don’t want to be cremated, I want to be buried. I don’t believe in wasting wood and I feel that one should give back to the earth.
– Khushwant Singh
Those we love don’t go away they walk beside us everyday….
Unseen, unheard, but always near.
Still missed & very dear,
Love you dad.
…. Yet amidst the emotion, when we think of the past, we smile – not for any specific event, or dialogue, or prank. It is a smile that incorporates the heart of a relationship that fills you with warmth, it implies a certainty that despite the circumstances, all will be well. It is a smile that we offer to you because eventually, it is a smile that will make you happy.
The destination of life is death. Still we ignore death and live a life of illusions. Our goal of life is to realize God before our final breath!
Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.
– George Eliot
