Robin Green and Mitchell Burgess

Mccreery, John Luckey
How long after you are gone will ripples remain as evidence that you were cast into the pool of life?
Bright, Grant M.
A man's death makes everything certain about him. Of course, secrets may die with him. And of course, a hundred years later somebody looking through some papers may discover a fact which throws a totally different light on his life and of which all the people who attended his funeral were ignorant. Death changes the facts qualitatively but not quantitatively. One does not know more facts about a man because he is dead. But what one already knows hardens and becomes definite. We cannot hope for ambiguities to be clarified, we cannot hope for further change, we cannot hope for more. We are now the protagonists and we have to make up our minds.

To a father, when a child dies, the future dies; to a child when a parent dies, the past dies.
If even dying is to be made a social function, then, grant me the favor of sneaking out on tiptoe without disturbing the party.
If life must not be taken too seriously -- then so neither must death.
Our repugnance to death increases in proportion to our consciousness of having lived in vain.
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones. [Psalms 116:15]
Death not merely ends life, it also bestows upon it a silent completeness, snatched from the hazardous flux to which all things human are subject.
He who is obsessed by death is made guilty by it.
Man that is born of woman hath but a short time to live, and is full of misery. He comet up, and is cut down, like a flower; he fleeth as it were a shadow, and never continueth in one stay.
