Meg Rosoff
“I am almost a hundred years old; waiting for the end, and thinking about the beginning.

There are things I need to tell you, but would you listen if I told you how quickly time passes?

I know you are unable to imagine this.

Nevertheless, I can tell you that you will awake someday to find that your life has rushed by at a speed at once impossible and cruel. The most intense moments will seem to have occurred only yesterday and nothing will have erased the pain and pleasure, the impossible intensity of love and its dog-leaping happiness, the bleak blackness of passions unrequited, or unexpressed, or unresolved.”
Meg Rosoff, What I Was

Tom Stoppard
“We do on stage things that are supposed to happen off. Which is a kind of integrity, if you look on every exit as being an entrance somewhere else.”
Tom Stoppard, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

Run with you in the evenings along the shore,
Except in a kind of dream, and you, if you dream a moment,
You see me there.”
Robinson Jeffers

Robin Hobb, Fool's Assassin

“The physical reinvention of the world is endless, relentless, fascinating, exhaustive; nothing that seems solid is. If you could stand at just a little distance in time, how fluid and shape-shifting physical reality would be, everything hurrying into some other form, even concrete, even stone.”
Mark Doty

Michael Bassey Johnson
“The passage is free for those who think you are not good enough for them: at your level, I think the best option is to sit back, relax and listen to a cool music, while watching them pack out of your life, and that's when you feel the intense release from the pit of hell.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Kate McGahan
“I knew then why I had to suffer. The older we get, the more reasons God gives us to seek His comfort. In the end, He sends us just enough pain and suffering so that we will want to leave. If everything were perfect, we would never choose to go. He wants us to seek an end to our suffering because He wants us to want to come Home.”
Kate McGahan, JACK McAFGHAN: Reflections on Life with my Master

Nate Spears
“No thought is a stupid thought, those who are thoughtless are thought of as stupid.”
Nate Spears, Inspiration 2 Smile

Kathryn Hurn
“How easily such a thing can become a mania, how the most normal and sensible of women once this passion to be thin is upon them, can lose completely their sense of balance and proportion and spend years dealing with this madness.”
Kathryn Hurn, HELL HEAVEN & IN-BETWEEN: One Woman's Journey to Finding Love

Robin Hobb
“The knowledge that he had left me with no intent ever to return had come over me in tiny droplets of realization spread over the years. And each droplet of comprehension brought its own small measure of hurt.”
Robin Hobb, Fool's Assassin

Nate Spears
“Live for everything, or die for nothing”
Nate Spears

Kate McGahan
“Death gets a bad rap. People think that euthanasia is putting their pets “down” when it really is lifting us up. In the first moment, when we come back to earth, we remember the comfort of the Heaven we came from and this is why we cry when we are born. When we are born in Heaven we come in laughing not crying! In birth we have the passage and then the pain. In death we have the pain and then the passage.”
Kate McGahan, Jack McAfghan: Return from Rainbow Bridge

Kate McGahan
“We need to go first because we cannot live without your love and care. If we lived longer than you, we would not and could not survive. It’s supposed to be this way. We also need to cross the Rainbow Bridge before you do so that we can be on the other side to greet you when you get there. We wait at home for you here and we wait at Home for you there. It’s just the way it is.”
Kate McGahan, JACK McAFGHAN: Reflections on Life with my Master

Neil Mach
“There's barely a hair's breadth
Between emergence and passage
So why misspend
The time in between?”
Neil Mach, The Bedevilment of Bertie Lunn

Randall Munroe
“It's weird how I am constantly surprised by the passage of time when it's literally the most predictable thing in the Universe.”
Randall Munroe

While falling it hides your passage
When finished it documents your path”

Kate McGahan
“I loved her. I did not know what state of mind I would be in when I got where I was going and I was most worried that in the process I might forget her. I did not ever want to forget her! I held the image of her in my mind so strongly and the eternal love for her so deep within my heart that it could never ever be erased, no matter what. My love for her was stronger than anything that could happen to me.”
Kate McGahan, Jack McAfghan: Return from Rainbow Bridge

Nate Spears
“Any hand can condem, but it takes a helping hand to build.”
Nate Spears, Inspiration 2 Smile

David Paul Kirkpatrick
“I have lived a big life. For that I am grateful.

But as one disengages from it and grows more reflective and less involved in the day-to-day grind, I think it’s possible to discover wisdom, born of experience and thankfulness. You must “ swallow the shadow” i.e. the fear of death. You must let go of the image of the fit-body and the triumph of your ego-place in the overculture.

I think, if you can do that, this “good age” as I like to call it, can be full of radiant inspiration and tender memory. For in all it’s contradiction, somewhere, in the puzzle of life, is incredible beauty. And who does not want to know beauty through their remembering?”
David Paul Kirkpatrick

“Death is only a passage, border : I would not have passport for it ! (La mort n'est qu'un passage, frontière. - J'aimerais n'avoir pas de passeport)”
Charles de Leusse

“We just tend to live our lives without even knowing that there are certain principles that enhance a better passage through life.”
Sunday Adelaja

Naveed Qazi
“Wars were full of valours, coming of courage, fomenting of rage and the anticipation of victory. The soldiers were content with what they had spoiled, but it had made my mind run wild in the battles I had escaped.

How could I ever obliterate such memories? Such things were hard to forget.”
Naveed Qazi, The Trader of War Stories
