Afterlife Quotes

Birth and death are events in time and space.... there is nothing but Life.

Betty Kovacs

As for a future life, every man must judge for himself between conflicting vague probabilities.

Charles Darwin

When you are born, you cry, and the world rejoices. When you die, you rejoice, and the world cries.

Tibetan Buddhist wisdom

The only thing that makes life endurable in this world is human love, and yet, according to Christianity, that is the very thing that we are not to have in the other world. We are to be so taken up with Jesus and angels, that we shall care nothing about our brothers and sisters that have been damned. We shall be so carried away with the music of the harp that we shall not even hear the wail of father and mother. Such a religion is a disgrace to human nature.

Robert Green Ingersoll

Men long for an afterlife in which there apparently is nothing to do but delight in heaven's wonders.

Louis D. Brandeis

The chief problem about death, incidentally, is the fear that there may be no afterlife -- a depressing thought, particularly for those who have bothered to shave. Also, there is the fear that there is an afterlife but no one will know where it's being held.

Woody Allen

The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who, in times of great moral crisis, maintain their neutrality.

Dante Alighieri

Conscience is no more than the dead speaking to us.

Jim Carroll

Seeing death as the end of life is like seeing the horizon as the end of the ocean.

David Searls

Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting; The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star, Hath had elsewhere its setting. And cometh from afar.

William Wordsworth

It is not more surprising to be born twice than once; everything in nature is resurrection.

Voltaire

All pure and holy spirits live on in heavenly places, and in course of time they are again sent down to inhabit righteous bodies.

Josephus

Everything science has taught me - and continues to teach me - strengthens my belief in the continuity of our spiritual existence after death. Nothing disappears without a trace.

Wernher von Braun

Men fear death, as if unquestionably the greatest evil, and yet no man knows that it may not be the greatest good.

William Mitford

It is not all of life to live, nor yet all of death to die. For life and death are one, and only those who will consider the experience as one may come to understand or comprehend what peace indeed means.

Edgar Cayce

I believe that when death closes our eyes we shall awaken to a light, of which our sunlight is but the shadow

Arthur Schopenhauer

Death is not extinguishing the light; it is putting out the lamp because dawn has come.

Rabindranath Tagore

We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience

Wayne Dyer

All are but parts of one stupendous whole whose body Nature is, and God the soul.

Alexander Pope

Life is eternal; and love is immortal; and death is only a horizon; and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.

R. W. Raymond

Ancient Egyptians believed that upon death they would be asked two questions and their answers would determine whether they could continue their journey in the afterlife. The first question was, "Did you bring joy?" The second was, "Did you find joy?"

Leo Buscaglia

You live on earth only for a few short years which you call an incarnation, and then you leave your body as an outworn dress and go for refreshment to your true home in the spirit.

White Eagle

It's better to bet on this life than on the next.

Albert Camus
