It is obvious for everyone that death expects us all in the long run; but nevertheless we live our lives as if there will be no death.
If only God is among us, and eternity exists, then everything is different. We can distinguish good from evil, light from darkness, and despair disappears.
One of the key questions we face is whether our lives end after death. Whether we believe in eternity or not determines our actions. Therefore, it is crucial that we determine what is mortal in us, and what is eternal, and that we cherish those things eternal. Most people do exactly the opposite.
— After Blaise Pascal
The more deeply you understand life, the less you grieve over the destruction caused by death.
Whatever name you give to the origin of man, this spiritual quality of humans to understand, feel and exist, it is holy, it is divine, and, therefore, it should be eternal.— Marcus Tullius Cicero
