I could die for you. But I couldn't, and wouldn't, live for you.
I'm the one that has to die when it's time for me to die, so let me live my life, the way I want to.
It is often said that before you die your life passes before your eyes. It is in fact true. It's called living.
I believe that every single event in life happens in an opportunity to choose love over fear.
Our strength lies in our intensive attacks and our barbarity...After all, who today remembers the genocide of the Armenians?
It's stasis that kills you off in the end, not ambition.
Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second's encounter with God and with eternity.
Death and love are the two wings that bear the good man to heaven.
It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both.
Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.
An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.
Courage is not the absence of fear it is inspiring others to move beyond it.
The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.
For a man who has done his natural duty, death is as natural as sleep.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily lying down.
Fear is pain arising from the anticipation of evil.
If you are afraid of being lonely, don't try to be right.
A single death is a tragedy; a million deaths is a statistic.
Could any death be so horrible as birth? Or any decrepitude so awful as childhood in a happy united God-fearing family?
A thing is not necessarily true because a man dies for it.
He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.
