Emily Brontë
“Heaven did not seem to be my home; and I broke my heart with weeping to come back to earth; and the angels were so angry that they flung me out into the middle of the heath on the top of Wuthering Heights; where I woke sobbing for joy.”
Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights

Stephenie Meyer
“I tried to concentrate on the angel's voice instead.
"Bella, please! Bella, listen to me, please, please, please, Bella, please!" he begged.
Yes, I wanted to say. Anything. But I couldn't find my lips.
"Carlisle!" the angel called, agony in his perfect voice. "Bella, Bella, no, oh please, no, no!" And the angel was sobbing tearless, broken sobs.
The angel shouldn't weep, it was wrong. I tried to find him, to tell him everything was fine, but the water was so deep, it was pressing on me, and I couldn't breathe.”
Stephenie Meyer, Twilight

Anita Moorjani
“I detach myself from preconceived outcomes and trust that all is well. Being myself allows the wholeness of my unique magnificience to draw me in those directions most beneficial to me and to all others. This is really the only thing I have to do. And within that framework, everything that is truly mine comes into my life effortlessly, in the most magical and unexpected ways imaginable, demonstrating every day the power and love of who I truly am.”
Anita Moorjani, Dying to Be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing

Anita Moorjani
“I believe that the greatest truths of the universe don't lie outside, in the study of the stars and the planets. They lie deep within us, in the magnificence of our heart, mind, and soul. Until we understand what is within, we can't understand what is without.”
Anita Moorjani, Dying to Be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing

A.G. Howard
“Morpheus places his hand on Jeb's busy fingers, eyes opened to slits. "Ah, my pretty pseudo elf." He takes labored breath. "is it time at last to express our unrequited feelings?”
A.G. Howard, Unhinged

Steve Goodier
“I have spent much of my life around death. I have sat with people as they died. I have listened to others relate near-death experiences. I have studied theology and am aware of what scriptures and religions say about life and death. And I have come to the conclusion that death is not to be feared. Moreover, when it is time for me to move out of this tenement in which I am housed, I intend to look forward to it joyfully.”
Steve Goodier

Christopher Hitchens
“In Sarajevo in 1992, while being shown around the starved, bombarded city by the incomparable John Burns, I experienced four near misses in all, three of them in the course of one day. I certainly thought that the Bosnian cause was worth fighting for and worth defending, but I could not take myself seriously enough to imagine that my own demise would have forwarded the cause. (I also discovered that a famous jaunty Churchillism had its limits: the old war-lover wrote in one of his more youthful reminiscences that there is nothing so exhilarating as being shot at without result. In my case, the experience of a whirring, whizzing horror just missing my ear was indeed briefly exciting, but on reflection made me want above all to get to the airport. Catching the plane out with a whole skin is the best part by far.) Or suppose I had been hit by that mortar that burst with an awful shriek so near to me, and turned into a Catherine wheel of body-parts and (even worse) body-ingredients? Once again, I was moved above all not by the thought that my death would 'count,' but that it would not count in the least.”
Christopher Hitchens, Hitch-22: A Memoir

Terry Pratchett
“I really should talk to him. He's had a near-death experience!”
"We all have. It's called living."
(Hogfather)”
Terry Pratchett

Janet Bettag
“In that nanosecond of enlightenment I knew that the human spirit survives the death of the physical body and I understood that my wandering soul needed to get back into its earthly habitat.”
Janet Bettag

Joseph Conrad
“I found myself back in the sepulchral city resenting the sight of people hurrying through the streets to filch a little money from each other, to devour their infamous cookery, to gulp their unwholesome beer, to dream their insignificant and silly dreams. They trespassed upon my thoughts. They were intruders whose knowledge of life was to me an irritating pretence, because I felt so sure they could not possibly know the things I knew. Their bearing, which was simply the bearing of commonplace individuals going about their business in the assurance of perfect safety, was offensive to me like the outrageous flauntings of folly in the faces of a danger it is unable to comprehend.”
Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness

Luke  Taylor
“His eyesight was possessed by the colours of trauma, cracking and bubbling like an old Super Eight film to remind him of his near-death drowning some two months ago in that very moment when he needed to act.”
Luke Taylor, Shatterpoint Alpha

Don Piper
“Unworthy as I am, he allowed me to go to heaven, and I know the next time I go there, I’ll stay.”
Don Piper, 90 Minutes In Heaven: A True Story of Death and Life

Eben Alexander
“To experience thinking outside the brain is to enter a world of instantaneous connections that make ordinary thinking (i.e those aspects limited by the physical brain and the speed of light_ seem like some hopelessly sleepy and plodding event. Our truest, deepest self is completely free. It is not crippled or compromised by past actions or concerned with identity or status. It comprehends that it has no need to fear the earthly world, and therefore, it has no need to build itself up through fame or wealth or conquest.”
Eben Alexander

Oliver Rixon
“Jenny sensed the energy of the cosmos. It was like a harmonious orchestra vibrating the universe into existence.' Broken Mirror by Oliver Rixon”
Oliver Rixon, Broken Mirror

Kristen Henderson
“Time’s relativity
is considered and abandoned,
for the more revelatory
experiences of starlight
in strands, and pearly
floors that span as far as
absolute compassion...”
Kristen Henderson

Marcha A. Fox
“The transition from subject to observer was instantaneous, sensations, sights, and sounds changing from instruments of torment to a fascinating display of electronic signals. The spectra included thousands of frequencies, visual, audio and psi bands alike, each customized for a specific effect, a pseudo symphony for an audience of one.”
Marcha A. Fox, A Psilent Place Below

“You call it a near death experience, I call it a near life experience!”
L.J. Vanier

Joseph G. Peterson
“He felt entombed and stifled and desperately craved oxygen. He vainly raised the question: Why have you forsaken me?

'Call my mother,' he yelled. He had meant to say: I'm dying. Please call a priest.

The shadowy Presence, who had been in a panic, rushed over to him and, disregarding the fact that it was live, pushed the cable aside.

'You're alive,' the Presence said in breathless tones. 'Mamma's here to help.'

The elevator continued to descend, creating a vacuum. Barnes gasped for breath.

'Breathe in, breathe out,' the Presence urged. She tapped his pulse rapidly with two fingers. 'Come on, you can do it. One, two, three. Breathe in. Mamma's here to help.' ... In his delirium he thought that indeed his mother was here to help. However, in all of Barnes's twenty-nine years of so-called living, his mother had never come so comfortingly close as this.”
Joseph G. Peterson, Wanted: Elevator Man

Jack Campbell
“Let's get going. I don't like being alone out here. The sooner we can blend in with the Imperial population the safer we'll be. It's not hard to cross here," Mari added as they waded through the stream.
"We are fortunate," Alain told her. "It is more difficult downstream."
She felt a shadow cross her mind. "Where that bridge was? Where you almost died?"
"Yes."
"I'm really proud of you for that, but don't do it again. I'm being selfish. I need you." Mari waved one finger at Alain. "Don't be a hero?"
He regarded her impassively. "Even if you need a hero?”
Jack Campbell, The Hidden Masters of Marandur

“SPIRITUAL BEINGS
“God chooses to co-create with every being. In the spiritual realm, spiritual beings have important assignments within the constraints of divine rules. In other words, spiritual beings are not spending eternity lounging around on clouds.”
Roy L. Hill, Psychology and the Near-Death Experience: Searching for God

“The recorder consisted of a biochip smaller than the head of a pin implanted into the hippocampus and nanosensors embedded throughout the body. Normally, the system lay dormant. But as soon as it detected severe deviations from the norm in various brain activity parameters - indicative of the stress caused by imminent death or great danger - the black-box would automatically contact the police and record the short-term memory in the hippocampus via molecular scanning. In the event of death, about one to two minutes of memories preceding the cessation of brain activity could be decrypted from the black box.”
Bao Shu, Clarkesworld Magazine, Issue 108

“É a sensação de rodar, rodar, rodar, sem saber exatamente pra onde estava indo ou como se já estivesse no céu. Por que acredito totalmente que é pra lá que eu vou quando isso for decidido, quando for o momento. Eu não sabia o que estava acontecendo, porque eu não sabia como começou acontecer. Uma tarde de domingo, linda, maravilhosa, um sol belo, azul, 17h. Eu, ahn, ao contrário do que os homens pensam, eu dirijo muito bem. Porque pra dirigir Rio, São Paulo, Porto Alegre, precisa dirigir muito bem. Não tinha movimento e era incrível, era Domingo, era pra estar lotado de carros vindo da praia. Era verão. Dia 19 de dezembro de 1999, exatamente no dia que minha mãe se tivesse viva, estaria de aniversário. E eu vinha muito feliz, e eu estava indo muito feliz pra Santa Isabel, aonde esses amigos maravilhosos numa turnê que eu fiz com terapia sexual e que eles se tornaram amigos íntimos. Estávamos indo eu e a minha empresária, minha amiga querida, que hoje é minha amiga querida e não mais empresária, Berenice Lamônica, quando tudo começou a girar, girar, girar, girar e eu disse: "Berenice, segura, nós vamos bater". Nada mais me lembro! Nada mais me lembro! Apenas sei que foram horas e horas e horas e horas de resgate porque pensavam que eu estava realmente morta! (...) Eu tive sete vértebras realmente feridas, não pude nem mais fazer a novela, não pude mais nem...Eu tive que...Era natal, tive que ir com aquelas macas da Varig e tal, e realmente foi uma coisa terrível e foram meses e meses na cama de recuperação, foi uma coisa terrível. (...) Ah, eu tenho certeza absoluta que foi ele que me salvou! Aliás, a minha vida, eu digo: é uma antes do acidente e outra pós-acidente (...) A oração, sobretudo, a oração é que te recupera. E ali começou uma nova Leila, uma nova Leila! É esse Deus que me tirou dali, são esses anjos, esse Jesus Cristo meu irmão que me tirou dali. E um bom carro também, né, se pode falar! Se eu tivesse de um fusquinha que tem que empurrar - me desculpe os fusquinhas, acho ótimo - eu não estaria lá, com certeza. Não estaria mais aqui, eu seria também um anjo, tenho certeza. Porque tudo que eu faço na minha vida, sem pieguice, é tentar ser boa!”
Leila Lopes

Muditha Champika
“Treasures are hidden and hard to find but if we could find a real treasure, it will shine our lives. In the similar way ultimate reality is hidden and hard to find but if we could find it, it will shine our lives.”
Muditha Champika, Theories of Nature and the Universe: Comparison of Pure Buddhist Philosophy and Science

Roshan Sharma
“The sensation that you experience in the body, is your spirit, but it’s so attached, that it’s hard to imagine, that the sensation can ever be separated from the physical body. In long hours of meditation, you can separate your sensation from the physical body.”
Roshan Sharma

Abhijit Naskar
“Nanak’s encounter of God and God’s court was in fact a profound hallucinatory Near-Death Experience caused by drowning that strengthened his pre-conceived notion of a rational, compassionate and unorthodox society.”
Abhijit Naskar, Neurons, Oxygen & Nanak

Lailah Gifty Akita
“Whoever has experienced near-death, knows how gracious, it is to be alive.”
