Life consists of numerous invisible, imperceptible changes, changes that began at birth and end with death. It is not possible for us humans to observe them all.
Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains by itself alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world shall keep it to life eternal.
— John 12:24-25
Life is changing all the time and only the ignorant do not look into the depth of things.
— Lucy Malory
Why are you so afraid of change? Nothing in this world can be done without change. Only one rule should remain constant: do not do anything inhumane to others.
— Marcus Aurelius
Everything in this world blooms, grows, and returns to its roots. Returning to one's roots means becoming united with nature; becoming united with nature involves eternity. The destruction of your body holds no danger in itself.
Death is a change to a form with which our spirit is united. You should not confuse the form with those things with which it is united.
