We cannot banish dangers, but we can banish fears. We must not demean life by standing in awe of death.
Because of indifference, one dies before one actually dies.
Nothing that is really good and God-like dies.
Ernst Moritz Arndt
A dying man needs to die, as a sleepy man needs to sleep, and there comes a time when it is wrong, as well as useless, to resist.
A friend who dies, it’s something of you who dies.
