6. "Death is, and must be, deeply emotional. To intentionally cause death is to engender a form of intimacy, one that we're not used to thinking about. To kill without emotion and without respect, or to ignore the intimacy inherent in the act, is to rob it of its dignity, and to rob the life that you are ending of its significance. By robbing death and life of significance we reduce ourselves to the machines Descartes dreamed about. And we deny our own significance."

She tried, on that final day, as hard as anyone could have tried. And I would try to find peace in that."
Author: Gillian Flynn

14. "The absurd man will not commit suicide; he wants to live, without relinquishing any of his certainty, without a future, without hope, without illusions … and without resignation either.

Author: Jean Paul Sartre
15. "The battlefield is symbolic of the field of life, where every creature lives on the death of another. A realization of the inevitable guilt of life may so sicken the heart, that like Hamlet, or like Arjuna, one may refuse to go on with it. On the other hand, like most of the rest of us, one may invent a false finally unjustified image of oneself as an exceptional phenomenon in the world--not guilty as others are, but justified in one's inevitable sinning, because one represents the good. Such self-righteousness leads to a misunderstanding, not only of oneself, but of the nature of both Man and the Cosmos. The goal of the myth is to dispel the need for such life-ignorance by affecting a reconciliation of the individual consciousness with the universal will, and this is affected through a realization of the true relationship of the passing phenomena of time to the imperishable life that lives and dies in all."
Author: Joseph Campbell
16. "There is death in the folds of her skirt and blood about her feet. She is for no man."
Author: Joseph Conrad

Author: Lil' Wayne
18. "Bad divorce?" Hardy asked, his gaze falling to my hands. I realized I was clutching my purse in a death grip."No, the divorce was great," I said. "It was the marriage that sucked."
Author: Lisa Kleypas
19. "He says we need to live in the real world, where war and death are a reality, not pretend."
Author: Pittacus Lore
20. "I was ever a fighter, so---one fight more, The best and the last! I would hate that death bandaged my eyes and forbore, and bade me creep past."
Author: Robert Browning
21. "According to Freudian psychology, the ego is that part of us that allows us to correctly perceive external reality and function well in everyday life. People who have this concept of the ego frequently look upon the ego death as a frightening and tremendously negative event--as the loss of ability to operate in the world. However, what really dies in this process is that part of us that holds a basically paranoid view of ourselves and of the world around. Alan Watts called this aspect, which involves a sense of absolute separateness from everything else, "skin-encapsulated ego." It is made up of the internal perceptions of our lives that we learned during the struggle in the birth canal and during various painful encounters after birth."
Author: Stanislav Grof
22. "Change is the parent of progress."
Author: Steve Maraboli
23. "Woe, destruction, ruin, and decay; the worst is death and death will have his day."
Author: William Shakespeare

Today's Quote

Eudine did not reply. She was indecipherable, so ageless and immaculate. Her eyes were the same caramel shade as her skin. Her face was a placid lake, such depths. A woman with a face like that could be a confessor, could be told anything, no matter how awful, and remain steady as granite."
