Life is a habit that’s hard to break…


No one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away…

Noli Timere Messorum – Don’t Fear The Reaper

Look after the dead, said the priests, and the dead would look after you. After all, they were in the majority.

A man is not dead while his name is still spoken

He said that there was death and taxes, and taxes was worse, because at least death didn’t happen to you every year.

The span of someone’s life, they say, is only the core of their actual existence.


Death marked the first day of the rest of his life
