You never know how much you really believe anything until its truth or falsehood becomes a matter of life and death to you. [Author - C.S. Lewis]
Life and death are one thread, the same line viewed from different sides. (Writer - Lao Tzu)
The hour of departure has arrived, and we go our separate ways, I to die, and you to live. Which of these two is better only God knows. [Author: Socrates]
When faith is kneeling by his bed of death, And innocence is closing up his eyes, Now if thou would'st, when all have given him over, From death to life, thou might'st him yet recover - Michael Drayton
This is life's ultimate cruelty. It offers us a taste of youth and vitality, and then it makes us witness our own decay.
You can dwell on it for the rest of your life.
That’s death. Or you can let it go and move on.
That’s life. ~ Brigitte Nicole
