Famous Quotes For Funeral Cards 37

Who knows when the end is reached?
Death may be the beginning of life.
How do I know that love of life is not a

way and cannot find his way home?
How do I know that the dead repent of
having previously clung to life?
Chuang Tse

is like passing quietly through the gate

wooden gate in a clearing.
Neither pain, nor floods of light, nor great voices,
but just the silent crossing of a meadow.

in their skies one by one.

Famous Quotes For Funeral Cards 45

‘Tis the maddest trick a man can ever play in his whole life, to let his breath sneak out of his body

these dead people govern our lives,
we should go mad with horror.
