„Life is for the living.
Death is for the dead.
Let life be like music.
And death a note unsaid.“

„For the strife of Love's the abysmal strife,
And the word of Love is the Word of Life.
And they that go with the Word unsaid,
Though they seem of the living, are damned and dead.“

—  William Ernest Henley English poet, critic and editor 1849 - 1903

XXI
Hawthorn and Lavender (1901)
Kontext: Love, which is lust, is the Lamp in the Tomb.
Love, which is lust, is the Call from the Gloom.
Love, which is lust, is the Main of Desire.
Love, which is lust, is the Centric Fire.
So man and woman will keep their trust,
Till the very Springs of the Sea run dust.
Yea, each with the other will lose and win,
Till the very Sides of the Grave fall in.
For the strife of Love's the abysmal strife,
And the word of Love is the Word of Life.
And they that go with the Word unsaid,
Though they seem of the living, are damned and dead.

„Let us learn from the lips of death the lessons of life. Let us live truly while we live, live for what is true and good and lasting.“

—  Felix Adler German American professor of political and social ethics, rationalist, and lecturer 1851 - 1933

Founding Address (1876), Life and Destiny (1913)
Kontext: Let us learn from the lips of death the lessons of life. Let us live truly while we live, live for what is true and good and lasting. And let the memory of our dead help us to do this. For they are not wholly separated from us, if we remain loyal to them. In spirit they are with us. And we may think of them as silent, invisible, but real presences in our households.

he'd just laugh.
