Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men

  • Healthy children will not fear life if their elders have integrity enough not to fear death.  – Erik H. Erikson
  • Millions long for immortality who do not know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon.  –Susan Ertz
  • Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men.  –Herodotus
  • We say that the hour of death cannot be forecast, but when we say this we imagine that hour as placed in an obscure and distant future.  It never occurs to us that it has any connection with the day already begun or that death could arrive this same afternoon, this afternoon which is so certain and which has every hour filled in advance.  –Marcel Proust
