- "Do not destroy yourself, for if you live you may yet have good fortune. But, all the dead are dead alike." – C.S. Lewis
- To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other’s hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time.
- "When I’m lying in my bed, I think about life and I think about death, and neither one particularly appeals to me" – Morrissey
- Death does not concern us, because as long as we exist, death is not here. And when it does come, we no longer exist. Epicurus
- The search for Reality is the most dangerous of undertakings, since it destroys the world in which you live – Nisargadatta
