Death . . . is no more than passing from one room into another. But there's a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see.
-Helen Keller

Accordingly, death is a harbor of peace for the just, but is believed a shipwreck for the wicked.
-Ambrose (c. 333–397)

Death is only a launching into the region of the strange Untried; it is but the first salutation to the possibilities of the immense Remote, the Wild, the Watery, the Unshored.
-Herman Melville

Death is only a larger kind of going abroad.
-Samuel Butler

Death is a Dialogue between,
The Spirit and the Dust.
-Emily Dickinson

Death is the most blessed dream.
-Georg Büchner

There is no death. Only a change of worlds.
- Chief Seattle

When it seems that our sorrow is too great to be borne, let us think of the great family of the heavy-hearted into which our grief has given us entrance. And inevitably, we will feel about us their arms, their sympathy and their understanding.
- Helen Keller

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.
- Aeschylus (525-456 BC)

Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.

- Pueblo Blessing

May the blessings of love be upon you
May its peace abide with you
May its essence illuminate your heart
Now and forever more....

- Sufi Blessing

They that love beyond the world cannot be separated by it. Death cannot kill what never dies.
- William Penn

Maybe [deaths] are not exits after all. Maybe they are holes through which something pours in, a love so far beyond our ken that we can only stand there, mute, riven, blessed.
- Brian Doyle
