Walter Isaacson
“Walter Issacson biographer of Steve Jobs:

I remember sitting in his backyard in his garden, one day, and he started talking about God. He [Jobs] said, “ Sometimes I believe in God, sometimes I don’t. I think it’s 50/50, maybe. But ever since I’ve had cancer, I’ve been thinking about it more, and I find myself believing a bit more, maybe it’s because I want to believe in an afterlife, that when you die, it doesn’t just all disappear. The wisdom you’ve accumulated, somehow it lives on.”

Then he paused for a second and said, “Yea, but sometimes, I think it’s just like an On-Off switch. Click. And you’re gone.” And then he paused again and said, “ And that’s why I don’t like putting On-Off switches on Apple devices.”

Joy to the WORLD! There IS an after-life!”
Walter Isaacson, Steve Jobs

Ahmed Sofa
“কোরবানির ঈদ আসন্ন। আমরা শিক্ষকদের বাড়ি বাড়ি গিয়ে বললাম, আপনারা এই ঈদে তো কোরবানি দেবেন। চামড়ার টাকাটা আমাদের দান করুন। আমরা বস্তির বাচ্চাদের জন্য একটা স্কুল বানাতে যাচ্ছি। সকলেই বললেন, তোমরা খুব ভালো কাজ করছ। এইসব অবহেলিত শিশুদের মধ্যে জ্ঞানের আলো জ্বালাতে যাচ্ছ। এই প্রশংসা-বাক্য শুনেই আমাদের সন্তুষ্ট থাকতে হল। একজন ছাড়া কেউ কোরবানির চামড়া দিতে রাজি হলেন না। মাদ্রাসার হুজুরেরা প্রতি বছর চামড়ার টাকা নিতে আসেন, তাদের বঞ্চিত করা যাবে না। তর্ক করে লাভ নেই। মাদ্রাসার দাবি ঠেলে আমরা বস্তির শিশুদের দাবি প্রতিষ্ঠা করতে পারব না। আমরা তো আর ধর্ম শিক্ষা দিচ্ছিনে। আমরা নিজেরাও কেউ গোলটুপিঅলা হুজুর নই। আমাদের বাচ্চাদের স্কুলে দান করলে তো পরকালে পুণ্য সঞ্চয়ের কোনো সম্ভাবনা নেই।”
Ahmed Sofa, পুষ্প, বৃক্ষ এবং বিহঙ্গ পুরাণ

Plato
“«Ἀνάγκης θυγατρός κόρης Λαχέσεως λόγος. Ψυχαὶ ἐφήμεροι, ἀρχὴ ἂλλης περιόδου θνητοῦ γένους θανατηφόρου. Οὐχ ὑμᾶς δαίμων λήξεται, ἀλλ’ ὑμεῖς δαίμονα αἱρήσεσθε. Πρῶτος δ’ ὁ λαχών πρῶτος αἱρείσθω βίον ᾧ συνέσται ἐξ ἀνάγκης. Ἀρετὴ δὲ ἀδέσποτον, ἣν τιμῶν καὶ ἀτιμάζων πλέον καὶ ἒλαττον αὐτῆς ἓκαστος ἓξει. Αἰτία ἑλομένου. θεὸς ἀναίτιος.»”
Plato

Toba Beta

Master of Stupidity: What makes you think a soul will go elsewhere physically?”
Toba Beta, Master of Stupidity

Pablo
“Don't worry much about the after-life, Just like you don't worry about your before-Life. Worry (and be grateful) about THIS life. This one DOES count”

Kyung-Sook Shin
“But, Aunt... I don't want to go to the grave site set aside for me a few years ago at the ancestral grave site. I don't want to go there. When I lived here and woke up from the fog in my head, I would walk by myself to the grave site set aside for me, so that I could feel comfortable if I lived there after death. It was sunny, and I liked the pine tree that stood bent but tall, but remaining a member of this family even in death would be too much and too hard. To try to change my mind, I would sing and pull weeds, sitting there until the sun set, but nothing made me feel comfortable there. I lived with this family for over fifty years; please let me go now.”
Kyung-Sook Shin

Donna Goddard
“Walk a bit further.
There is a different land not far away.
The people in it have the magic to break the icy fingers of the great death.
I heard that you don’t even have to pay.
However, you have to find their door.
It is only found by those who pay the other price.”
Donna Goddard, Love's Longing

Muditha Champika
“We all are wearing many hundred glasses of different colors. Therefore, everyone sees the world in different views. Somehow, if we could remove those glasses, we can see the world with real colors. Name of the most difficult to remove glass is ‘there are permanent things of mine.”
Muditha Champika, Theories of Nature and the Universe: Comparison of Pure Buddhist Philosophy and Science

C.S. Lewis
“I beg readers to remember that this is a fantasy. It has of course - or I intended it to have - a moral. But the transmortal conditions are solely an imaginative supposal: they are not even a guess or a speculation at what may actually await us. The last thing I wish is to arouse factual curiosity about the details of the after-world.”
C S Lewis, The Great Divorce

Bangambiki Habyarimana
“We are like other animals; we live and die as they do. If there is any afterlife, I believe we are in together.”
Bangambiki Habyarimana, Pearls Of Eternity

Min Jin Lee
“[...] I talk to the dead although I don't believe in ghosts. But it makes me feel good to speak with them. Maybe that is what God is. A good God wouldn't have let my babies die. I can't believe in that. My babies did nothing wrong."

"I agree. They did nothing wrong." He looked at her thoughtfully.

"But a God that did everything we thought was right and good wouldn't be the creator of the universe. He would be our puppet. He wouldn't be God. There's more to everything than we can know.”
Min Jin Lee, Pachinko

“The Word of God prepares you for a better life in this world and after you leave this world.”
Gift Gugu Mona

Christopher Pike
“I stand on a vast grass field of many gently sloping hills. It is night, yet the sky is bright. There is no sun, but a hundred blazing blue stars, each shining in a long river of nebulous cloud. The air is warm, pleasant, fragrant with the perfume of a thousand invisible flowers. In the distance a stream of people walk toward a large vessel of some type, nestled between the hills. The ship is violet, glowing; the bright rays that stab forth from it seem to reach to the stars. Somehow I know that it is about to leave and that I am supposed to be on it. Yet, before I depart, there is something I have to discuss with Lord Krishna.
He stands beside me on the wide plain, his gold flute in his right hand, a red lotus slower in his left. His dress is simple, as is mine - long blue gowns that reach to the ground. Only he wears a single jewel around his neck - the brilliant Kaustubha gem, in which the destiny of every soul can be seen. He does not look at me but toward the vast ship, and the stars beyond. He seems to be waiting for me to speak, but for some reason I cannot remember what he said last. I only know that I am a special case. Because I do not know what to ask, I say what is most on my mind.
"When will I see you again, my Lord?"
He gestures to the vast plain, the thousands of people leaving. "The earth is a place of time and dimension. Moments here can seem like an eternity there. It all depends on your heart. When you remember me, I am there in the blink of an eye."
"Even on earth?"
He nods. "Especially there. It is a unique place. Even the gods pray to take birth there."
"Why that, my Lord?"
He smiles faintly. His smile is bewitching. It has been said, I know, that the smile of the Lord has bewildered the minds of the angels. It has bewildered mine.
"One quest always leads to another question. Some things are better to wonder about." He turns toward me finally, his long black hair blowing in the soft night breeze. The stars reflect in his black pupils; the whole universe is there. The love that flows from him is the sweetest ambrosia in all the heavens. Yet it breaks my heart to feel because I know it will soon be gone. "It is all maya," he says. "Illusion."
"Will I get lost in this illusion, my Lord?"
"Of course. It is to be expected. You will be lost for a long time.”
Christopher Pike, Thirst No. 1: The Last Vampire, Black Blood, and Red Dice

“I’d like to think and believe that a billion light years away, into the distant filaments of galaxies, a place like this one exists, where all dreams come true, older people don’t suffer from the misery of dying, and children are relieved from the veil of innocence and ignorance. Although I still want to feel the pain of being human, I’d like to live there, correct all my shortcomings, reconcile and profess my deepest affection to my loved ones, and ask for forgiveness to the people whom I’ve hurt or ignored in this life. (Danny Castillones Sillada, Out There, Inusara Journal)”

Henry Ward Beecher
“Living is death; dying is life. We are not what we appear to be. On this side of the grave we are exiles, on that, citizens; on this side, orphans, on that, children; on this side, captives; on that, freemen; on this side, disguised, unknown; on that, disclosed and proclaimed as the sons of God.”
Henry Ward Beecher

Matthew Culberson
“There are moments in life. And, yes, still moments in death.”

“You know, through my travels and meeting people who were part of Miriam’s life, I’m learning that it’s the things you say and do that people remember you for. She is no longer here but she lives on in people’s hearts and minds.”
Phaedra Patrick, The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper

Matthew Culberson
“The truth in death can only be found in the dying itself”

“If you are looking for a great life in this life and beyond, you need to be introduced to a man who needs no introduction. His name is Jesus Christ. He has the sole ability to introduce people, to an everlasting life.”
Gift Gugu Mona

“You can worship God twenty four hours a day but your destiny depends on the cards he lets you play”
