Life is for the living.
Death is for the dead.
Let life be like music.
And death a note unsaid.

I see a beautiful city and a brilliant people rising from this abyss, and, in their struggles to be truly free, in their triumphs and defeats, through long years to come, I see the evil of this time and of the previous time of which this is the natural birth, gradually making expiation for itself and wearing out.
It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known.
  —  Charles Dickens
From his novel: “A Tale of Two Cities

One does not ask for life.  But it is all you have and you must live it and honor it and at the right time surrender it with the dignity and grace befitting the best that is in you.
   —  House of Sinanju
[I have a large number of “quotes” in my journal which are simply attributed to “House of Sinanju”.  I am sure they are all (each) from one of the 70+ books in “The Destroyer” series (co-written by Richard Sapir & Warren Murphy) which I was reading back in the 1970’s.  I didn’t record which book each quote came out of at the time I found them.  So, I’m just leaving them as recorded.  If anyone finds the book with the quote in it, and lets me know, I will be happy to attribute the quote accurately.  —  KMAB]

Death signifies nothing … the distinction between past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.

THE EPITAPH

Here rests his head upon the lap of Earth
    A youth to Fortune and to Fame unknown.
Fair Science frown’d not on his humble birth,
    And Melancholy mark’d him for her own.
Large was his bounty, and his soul sincere,
    Heav’n did a recompense as largely send:
He gave to Mis’ry all he had, a tear,
    He gain’d from Heav’n (’twas all he wish’d) a friend.
No farther seek his merits to disclose,
    Or draw his frailties from their dread abode,
(There they alike in trembling hope repose)
    The bosom of his Father and his God.
   —  Thomas Gray
Excerpt from his poem: “Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard
