No one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away.
~ Terry Pratchett
Unable are the loved to die. For love is immortality.

If death meant just leaving the stage long enough to change costume and come back as a new character, would you slow down? Or speed up?
~ Chuck Palahniuk

Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.

I will not say: do not weep; for not all tears are an evil.
~ J.R.R. Tolkien
