It is often said that before you die your life passes before your eyes. It is in fact true. It's called living.
He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.
It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both.

The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.

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.
Could any death be so horrible as birth? Or any decrepitude so awful as childhood in a happy united God-fearing family?
