Honoré de Balzac -
Death unites as well as separates it silences all paltry feeling.
H. Rider Haggard -
Truly the universe is full of ghosts, not sheeted churchyard spectres, but the inextinguishable elements of individual life, which having once been, can never die, though they blend and change, and change again for ever.
Sir Walter Scott -
Death...the last sleep No, it is the Final Awakening.
