Edie Littlefield Sundby
“I love to walk. Walking is a spiritual journey and a reflection of living. Each of us must determine which path to take and how far to walk; we must find our own way, what is right for one may not be for another. There is no single right way to deal with late stage cancer, to live life or approach death, or to walk an old mission trail.”
Edie Littlefield Sundby, The Mission Walker: I was given three months to live...

K. Martin Beckner
“Why do we as humans always tend to remember the worse things about people? We may know someone for many years, know them as vibrant and healthy, yet when they fall ill and pass away, we can only picture them at their sickest, as though they were born and lived their whole lives wearing a death mask.”
K. Martin Beckner, A Million Doorways

J.R. Ward
“It’s peaceful. Death can be a release and a relief for the person, and that is a blessing. The thing is, a lot of times, it is work to die. It requires physical and emotional effort. What sucks is that for most, particularly if they’re dying out of sequence, it’s a job they don’t want. It’s about loss of control, loss of function, loss of identity and independence…loss of choice and decision, of family and friends. But if you can let go of all that, what comes with it is freedom. A soaring freedom, the soul released from its temporary prison of mortality.” - Ivie”
J.R. Ward, Dearest Ivie

Anurag Shourie

Trisha North
“RED

Here’s the red
The red of love
The fire that burns
Within my soul
The reddest red
I’ve ever known
The flame untouched
Ignited coal

Here’s the red
The red of pain
That stinging pain
No one must know
The deepest red
I’ve ever felt
The emptiness
The mourning soul

Here’s the red
The red I knew
That exalted fire
That once ignited you

The reddest red
I ever knew…

The deepest red
I ever knew…”
Trisha North, Safe: The Places I Go in My Head to Feel Acceptance & Peace

J.R. Ward

J.R. Ward, Dearest Ivie

Sarah Gray
“After her declaration to become a ghost, her sister had given a nervous half-laugh and said that she didn't want Adelaide to do anything to scare her. Adelaide had agreed, but said she'd move things around her home just to confuse her. And laughed too. Her husband, Simon, had told her not to be morbid and reminded her that the consultant wasn't sure. It was possible she might live.”
Sarah Gray, Half Life

Matshona Dhliwayo
“When the body dies, that's all that perishes; but when the soul dies, everything ceases.”

“Is death the beginning? or is it the end?

Is it a release? An escape? Or is it the end of the journey? Or a beginning of something much bigger, much more grand?”
Ben Caesar

Mehmet Murat ildan

Mehmet Murat ildan

“When people pass away, we hurt, and we miss them. It's consoling to know they're not feeling anything. They're void of any consciousness. They're at peace.”
Izey Victoria Odiase

“I liked the ending of The Sopranos. The screen suddenly went black. In the middle of a scene. Without any of the plotlines being resolved. That's what real life is like. Everything keeps going, until someone turns off the lights and you're dead. And even then the story continues, without you. There is no such thing as a happy ending.”
Oliver Markus Malloy, Bad Choices Make Good Stories - Finding Happiness in Los Angeles

Italo Calvino
“Llega un momento de la vida en que de la gente que uno ha conocido son más los muertos que los vivos. Y la gente se niega a aceptar otras fisionomías, otras expresiones: En todas las caras nuevas que encuentra, imprime los viejos calcos, para cada una encuentra una cara que se le adapta mejor.”
Italo Calvino

Dianna Hardy
“Death is my redemption,” she whispered, her tears falling on his chest before rolling into the lapping ocean. He stilled for a moment, and she felt something warm and wet slide down her right temple and past her ear. His tear. His nose brushed against her forehead, before his lips pressed a kiss to it. “It seems we're at a bit of an impasse, then. Because your survival is mine.”
Dianna Hardy, Blood Shadow

Sogyal Rinpoche
“Death is a vast mystery, but there are two things we can layabout it: It is absolutely certain that we will die, and it is uncertain when or how we will die. The only surety we have, then, is this uncertainty about the hour of our death, which we seize on as the excuse to postpone facing death directly. We are like children who cover their eyes in a game of hide-and-seek and think that no one can see them.”
Sogyal Rinpoche, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying

“As a newborn baby each of us was helpless and, without the care and kindness we received then, we would not have survived. Because the dying are also unable to help themselves, we should relieve them of discomfort and anxiety, and assist them, as far as we can, to die with composure.”
Dalai Lama

Mehmet Murat ildan
“Life is meaningful; death is meaningless and religion’s greatest betrayal to the humanity is that it gave a meaning to death, it wrongly made the death as meaningful! Declaring an ultimate ‘end’ as a hopeful ‘exit’ to somewhere is the biggest crime of the religion!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

“Do not cry for me when I'm gone, for I've lived a thousand lives in one.”
