Quotes for January 21, 2013

“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”
Plato

“Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, the only fact we have. It seems to me that one ought to rejoice in the fact of death–ought to decide, indeed, to earn one’s death by confronting with passion the conundrum of life.”
James Baldwin

“Death is as unexpected in his caprice as a courtesan in her disdain; but death is truer – Death has never forsaken any man”
Honoré de Balzac

  1. Yin-Yang. There is also the fact of the miracle of birth. I think we should take as much joy in life as much as allow ourselves to be enlightened by the fact of our death. There is an ACDC song I am thinking of requesting at my funeral: “For those about to rock, we salute you,” It’s like goin’ out rockin to a twenty-one gun salute of mad guitars.
