Death is inevitable for everyone, however much people may prefer not to think about it. Death is also a great mystery. Man does not know what lies beyond and is fearful. But if somehow people could begin to comprehend something of death then they would be less afraid. Throughout life, death is a constant - people have to die to the past, and to their losses and disappointments. In the letting go is the reminder of the final letting go, and if people are able to die to the past and begin anew, then they are truly alive. This selection of quotations has been gathered from a wide variety of sources from both East and West. It is hoped that it will be of help not only to those confronting death or bereavement, but also to all those who question life's meaning. For in understanding death, people can understand how to live. Eileen Campbell is the author of "A Dancing Star" and "A Lively Flame", as well as the co-author of "The Aquarian Guide to the New Age".
