On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily lying down.
Could any death be so horrible as birth? Or any decrepitude so awful as childhood in a happy united God-fearing family?
Life and death are one thread, the same line viewed from different sides.
No one really knows why they are alive until they know what they'd die for.
If we have been pleased with life, we should not be displeased with death, since it comes from the hand of the same master.
Every man's life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.
We should never negotiate out of fear, but we should never fear to negotiate.
It is the cause, not the death, that makes the martyr.
The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.
It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both.
No power so effectually robs the mind of all its powers of acting and reasoning as fear.
There is nothing to fear but fear itself.
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.
There is no hope unmingled with fear, and no fear unmingled with hope.
When you are grateful, fear disappears and abundance appears.
A thing is not necessarily true because a man dies for it.
A man who fears suffering is already suffering from what he fears.
It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.
One is never afraid of the unknown; one is afraid of the known coming to an end.
He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.
