Death and Dying
“I like to think that people live on in other people’s memories.”
“You know, the ancient Egyptians had a beautiful belief about death. When their souls got to the entrance to heaven, the guards asked two questions. Their answers determined whether they were able to enter or not. ‘Have you found joy in your life?’ 'Has your life brought joy to others?’”
“The end comes, no matter what. The only thing that matters is, how do you want to go out, on your feet or on your knees?”
“People soften by the forced reflection that comes with loss.”
“All stories, even the ones we love, eventually come to an end.”
“Lightbulbs die, my sweet. I will depart.”
“Death is the road to awe.”
“I used to be afraid of two things – being alone and not being able to write. Since Albert’s death, I don’t care about writing or about other people.”
"If you are afraid of dying, it shows you have a life worth keeping."
"Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force."
