In the night of death, hope sees a star, and
listening love can hear the rustle of a wing.
A human life is a story told by God.
Hans Christian Andersen
While we are mourning the loss of our friend,
others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil.
Oh heart, if one should say to you that the soul
perishes like the body, answer that the flower withers, but the seed
remains. Kahlil Gibran
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 Worthington Raymond
It is the will of God and Nature that these
mortal bodies be laid aside, when the soul is to enter into real
life; 'tis rather an embrio state, a preparation for living; a man
is not completely born until he be dead: Why then should we grieve
that a new child is born among the immortals?
22 February 1756
And with the morn those angel
Which I have loved long since and lost awhile.
For death is no more than a
turning of us over from time to eternity.
