Death is not the greatest loss in life

  • Death is not the greatest loss in life.  The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.  –Norman Cousins
  • The death of someone we know always reminds us that we are still alive – perhaps for some purpose which we ought to re-examine.  –Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic’s Notebook, 1960
  • Death is a debt we all must pay.  –Euripides
  • They tell us that suicide is the greatest piece of cowardice… that suicide is wrong; when it is quite obvious that there is nothing in the world to which every man has a more unassailable title than to his own life and person.  –Arthur Schopenhauer
  • He who has gone, so we but cherish his memory, abides with us, more potent, nay, more present than the living man.  – Antoine de Saint-Exupery
