Death

IMG_2641

Nature herself gives us courage…Death is not to be feared.  It is a friend.  No man dies before his hour.  The time you leave behind was no more yours than that which was before your birth and concerneth you no more.  Make room for others as others have done for you.  Like a well-fed guest, depart to rest… The profit of life consists not in the space, but in the use.  Some man hath lived long that has had a short life…

Depart then without fear out of this world even as you came into it.  The same way you came from death to life, return from life to death.  Yield your torch to others as in a race.  Your death is but a piece of the world’s order, but a parcel of the world’s life.

~Michel de Montaigne~
