~Leonardo da Vinci


Was Shakespeare gay, and does it matter? | John Sutherland ...
To die, to sleep – To sleep, perchance to dream – ay, there’s the rub,  For in this sleep of death what dreams may come...”

William Shakespeare, Hamlet



Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing.

Redd Foxx


Dylan Thomasdt

Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Dylan Thomas, Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful.
It’s the transition that’s troublesome.

Isaac Asimov



We are the dead. Our only true life is in the future. We shall take part in it as handfuls of dust and splinters of bone. But how far away that future may be, there is no knowing.

George Orwell, 1984



Nora Ephron
Everybody dies. There’s nothing you can do about it. Whether or not you eat six almonds a day. Whether or not you believe in God. (Although there’s no question a belief in God would come in handy. It would be great to think there’s a plan, and that everything happens for a reason. I don’t happen to believe that. And every time one of my friends says to me, “Everything happens for a reason,” I would like to smack her.)”

Nora Ephron, I Remember Nothing: and Other Reflections


Ravens are the birds I’ll miss most when I die. If only the darkness into which we must look were composed of the black light of their limber intelligence. If only we did not have to die at all. Instead, become ravens.

Louise Erdrich, The Painted Drum

Lifeger is hard. Then you die. Then they throw dirt in your face. Then the worms eat you. Be grateful it happens in that order.”

David Gerrold

I hope it is true that a man can die
 and yet not only live in others
but give them life, and not only life,
but that great consciousness of life.”

Jack Kerouac

I didn’t attend the funeral,
but I sent a nice letter
saying I approved of it,

Mark Twain


I’m gonna live till I die.

Frank Sinatra


From my rotting body,
flowers shall grow
and I am in them
and that is eternity.”

Edvard Munch


You’ll have time to rest when you’re dead.

Robert De Niro

I’ll sleep when I’m dead.

Warren Zevon


“It is better to risk starving to death then surrender.2923036-6921351345-Jim-C

If you give up on your dreams, what’s left?”

Jim Carrey


“Even in the valley of the shadow of death,
two and two do not make six.”

~Leo Tolstoy

“You hear a lot about God these days: God, the beneficent; God, the all-great; God, the Almighty; God, the most powerful; God, the giver of life; God, the creator of death. I mean, we’re hearing about God all the time, so we better learn how to deal with it. But if we know anything about God, God is arbitrary.”

Bob Dylan

I don’t believe in death, neither in flesh nor in spirit.”

~Bob Marley



Socrates (Author of Ecclesiastical History)To fear death, gentlemen, is no other than to think oneself wise when one is not, to think one knows what one does not know. No one knows whether death may not be the greatest of all blessings for a man, yet men fear it as if they knew that it is the greatest of evils.


Kurt Vonnegut – American Academy of Arts and Letters“Why you? Why us for that matter? Why anything? Because this moment simply is. Have you ever seen bugs trapped in amber?… Well, here we are, Mr. Pilgrim, trapped in the amber of this moment. There is no why.”

—Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five.

I shall tell you a great secret my friend.  Do not wait for the last judgement, it takes place every day.

Albert Camus



“Death is a Dialogue between The Spirit and the Dust.”

EMILY DICKINSON, “Death is a Dialogue”


“The death penalty is being applied in the United States as a fatal lottery.”

~Bianca Jagger

Humans, inventing life and death, may not need better ideas.  We have become invisible gods in the sky, where love can be some distant entity, thing, person or nightmare.

But regardless of faith, fact, science, fiction, fantasy, fables, follies  or fairy-tales…  here on earth life is fine. And barring complications, more often than not, love works.

To life and courage: no fear, compromise or surrender.

A coalition is building: 31 million Americans who want health care, 40 million www.elle.comAmericans who want student debt erased. 70 million students in secondary school and college who deserve free K-16 education. 5 million Americans who lost their homes to banks. 3 million Americans used and abused in corporate wars of choice. And 80% of Americans who are in debt and tired of seeing banks bailed out and Main Street sold out.
