What happens after death is so unspeakably glorious that our imagination and our feelings do not suffice to form even an approximate conception of it. The dissolution of our time-bound form in eternity brings no loss of meaning.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
essayist, lecturer, philosopher, and poet
The soul comes from without into the human body, as into a temporary abode, and it goes out of it anew it passes into other habitations, for the soul is immortal.
To fear death is nothing other than to think oneself wise when one is not. For it is to think one knows what one does not know. No one knows whether death may not even turn out to be one of the greatest blessings of human beings. And yet people fear it as if they knew for certain it is the greatest evil.”hat happens after death is so unspeakably glorious that our imagination and our feelings do not suffice to form even an approximate conception of it. The dissolution of our time-bound form in eternity brings no loss of meaning.

Death - the last sleep?
No, it is the final awakening.

I believe there are two sides to the phenomenon known as death,
this side where we live, and the other side where we shall continue to live. Eternity does not start with death. We are in eternity now.

Just as a little bird cracks open the shell and flies out, we fly out of this shell, the shell of the body. We call that death, but strictly speaking, death is nothing but a change in form.
psychiatrist and author
Death is simply a shedding of the physical body like the butterfly shedding its cocoon. It is a transition to a higher state of consciousness where you continue to perceive, to understand, to laugh, and to be able to grow.
german theoretical physicist
I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness.
roman catholic nun and missionary
Death is nothing else but going home to God, the bond of love will be unbroken for all eternity.
When you are born, you cry, and the world rejoices. When you die, you rejoice, and the world cries.
When the heart weeps for what it has lost, the soul laughs for what it has found.
I’m not afraid of death because I don’t believe in it. It’s just getting out of one car and into another.
I believe that when death closes our eyes we shall awaken to a light, of which our sunlight is but the shadow.
sufi mysitc, spiritual teacher, poet
Die happily and look forward to taking up a new and better form. Like the sun, only when you set in the west can you rise in the east.

You live on earth for only a few short years which you call an incarnation, and then you leave your body as an outworn dress and go for refreshment to your true home in the spirit.

Of course you don't die. Nobody dies. Death doesn't exist.You only reach a new level of vision, a new realm of consciousness, a new unknown world.
poet, essayist, and journalist
All goes onward and outward, nothing collapses, And to die is different from what any one supposed, and luckier.
The Day Science Begins to Study Non-Physical Phenomena, it Will Make More Progress in one Decade Than in All The Previous Centuries of its existence.

Death is not extinguishing the light; it is putting out the lamp because dawn has come.

All that live must die, passing through nature to eternity.
After your death, you will be what you were before your birth.
Life is a dream walking. Death is going home.
