Death, Dying, and Grief
Fellow Travellers


Out from the mob with its furious pace
Into the cool, quiet reaches of space;
Rid of Society's glittering chains,
Fleeing a prison and finding the plains;
Far from the clangor of murderous cars,
Losing the limelight, but gaining...the stars!
John L. Stoddard

Youth cannot know how age thinks and feels. But old men are guilty if they forget what it was to be young ...
Albus Dumbledore (J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, 2003)

Death, Dying, and Grief

Great God! if what I dimly see,
In this small section of mankind,
Of pain and want and misery,
Can thus bring anguish to my mind,

How canst Thou view the awful whole,
As our ensanguined planet rolls
From unknown source to unknown goal
Its freight of suffering human souls?

John L. Stoddard

"Spirit, nearing yon dark portal
At the limit of thy human state,
Fear not thou the hidden purpose
Of that Power which alone is great,
Nor the myriad world, His shadow,
Nor the silent Opener of the Gate."
Alfred Tennyson

Under the wide and starry sky,
Dig the grave and let me lie.
Glad did I live and gladly die,
And I laid me down with a will.

This be the verse you grave for me:
Here he lies where he longed to be;
Home is the sailor, home from sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.

Robert Louis Stevenson

Life is a great surprise. I do not see why death should not be an even greater one.
John Shade (Vladimir Nabokov, Pale Fire, 1962)

In sorrow we must go, but not in despair. Behold! we are not bound for ever to the circles of the world, and beyond them is more than memory, Farewell!
