Character building begins in our infancy, and continues until death.
It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.
Could any death be so horrible as birth? Or any decrepitude so awful as childhood in a happy united God-fearing family?
It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both.
One is never afraid of the unknown; one is afraid of the known coming to an end.
For a man who has done his natural duty, death is as natural as sleep.
I do not see why man should not be just as cruel as nature
Death and love are the two wings that bear the good man to heaven.
A coward dies a thousand deaths... a soldier dies but once.
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.
The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be.
Pride is an admission of weakness; it secretly fears all competition and dreads all rivals.
If you die you're completely happy and your soul somewhere lives on. Im not afraid of dying. Total peace after death, becoming someone else is the best hope I've got.
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.
Im the one who's gonna die when its time for me to die...so let me live my life the way I want to...
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.
There is no hope unmingled with fear, and no fear unmingled with hope.
Tell your friend that in his death, a part of you dies and goes with him. Wherever he goes, you also go. He will not be alone.
Absolute silence leads to sadness. It is the image of death.
Its better to burn out than fade away.
Death may be the greatest of all human blessings.
