All tragedies are finished by a death, all comedies by a marriage.

If I had my life over again I should form the habit of nightly composing myself to thoughts of death. I would practice, as it were, the remembrance of death.

Terrified, you will flee from the radiance.

Recognize that the boundless light of this true reality is your own true self, and you shall be saved!

Natural ability without education has more often raised a man to glory and virtue than education without natural ability.
Natural abilities are like natural plants; they need pruning by study.
Good God! how often are we to die before we go quite off this stage? In every friend we lose a part of ourselves, and the best part.
Death gives us sleep, eternal youth, and immortality.
To fear love is to fear life, and those who fear life are already three parts dead.
One approaches the journey's end. But the end is a goal, not a catastrophe.
After your death you will be what you were before your birth.
Death -- the last sleep? No, it is the final awakening.
