Pondering What Happens

In The Knowledge Holder Greg Simon unwittingly becomes aware of what happens to people when they die. Since the beginning of time, humans have pondered mortality – perhaps the most provocative of all subjects.

Here are a few quotes relating to “The End” which I find insightful:

“The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?” Edgar Allan Poe

“Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there’s a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see.” Helen Keller

“The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.” Marcus Tullius Cicero

“For death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity.” William Penn

“Death is not extinguishing the light; it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come.” Rabindranath Tagore

“Death is the wish of some, the relief of many, and the end of us all.” Lucius Annaeus Seneca

“Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It’s the transition that’s troublesome.” Isaac Asimov

“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.” Steve Jobs

“Death, like birth, is a secret of Nature.” Marcus Aurelius
