Forever and Eternally…..

“Death is not an event in life: we do not live to experience death. If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present.”

~Ludwig Wittgenstein


 

“Eternal life can mean utter reverence for life itself.”

~Seamus Heaney

 


“From my rotting body, flowers shall grow and I am in them, and that is eternity.”

― Edvard Munch


Is there a God?
ingersoll

I do not know.
Is man immortal?
I do not know.
One thing I do know, and that is, that neither hope, nor fear, belief, nor denial, can change the fact. It is as it is, and it will be as it must be.
We can be as honest as we are ignorant. If we are, when asked what is beyond the horizon of the known, we must say that we do not know. We can tell the truth, and we can enjoy the blessed freedom that the brave have won. We can destroy the monsters of superstition, the hissing snakes of ignorance and fear. We can drive from our minds the frightful things that tear and wound with beak and fang. We can civilize our fellow-men.

We can fill our lives with generous deeds, with loving words, with art and song, and all the ecstasies of love. We can flood our years with sunshine — with the divine climate of kindness, and we can drain to the last drop the golden cup of joy.”

― Robert G. Ingersoll, The Works of Robert G. Ingersoll


Time is too swift for those who fear, too long for those who wait, too short for those who finally find peace, but for those who love, time is eternal.”

― Shannon L. Alder

“Love is its own eternity. Love is in every moment of its being: all time.
It is the only glimpse we are permitted of what eternity is.”

― Thornton Wilder, The Ides of March

“Death is a very dull, dreary affair, and my advice to you
is to have nothing whatsoever to do with it.”
― W. Somerset Maugham

Here are ideas about life after death

“Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”
                                                         ― Dylan Thomas
