|In one of the stars, I shall be living.
In one of them, I shall be laughing.
And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing when you
look at the sky at night.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
The Little Prince.

and the younger generation. For they are us, our bodies are
only wilted leaves on the tree of life.

giver's loving thought.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often and
loved much; who has gained the respect of intelligent men and
the love of little children; who has filled his niche and accomplished
his task; who has left the world better than he found it, whether
by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who
has never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to
express it; who has always looked for the best in others and
given them the best he had; whose life was an inspiration; whose
memory a benediction.
Life is eternal; and love is immortal; and death is only a horizon;
and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.
Rossiter W. Raymond

People living deeply have no fear of death.
He who has gone, so we but cherish his memory, abides with us,
more potent, nay, more present than the living man.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
The Wisdom of the Sands.
What good can come from meeting death with tears? If a man
is sorry for himself, he doubles death.
There was a time when we were not: this gives us no concern
- why then should it trouble us that a time will come when
we shall cease to be?
Though it is in the power of the weakest arm to take away
life, it is not in the strongest to deprive us of death.
Sir Thomas Browne
To die completely, a person must not only forget but be forgotten,
and he who is not forgotten is not dead.
Our fear of death is like our fear that summer will be short,
but when we have had our fill of fruit, our swelter of heat,
we said that we have had our day.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
When we lose someoe we love, our bitterest tears are called
forth by the memory of hours when we loved not enough.

hell when I do die somebody has sense enough to just dump
me in the river or something. Anything except sticking me
in a goddam cemetery. People coming and putting a bunch of
flowers on your stomach on Sunday, and all that crap. Who
wants flowers when you're dead? Nobody.
The Catcher in the Rye.
For what is it to die,
But to stand in the sun and melt into the wind?
While I thought that I was learning how to live, I have been
learning how to die.
