I’ll be doing this one David Shields style, with selected quotes. (Shields, by the way, is the author of The Thing About Life Is That One Day You’ll Be Dead)
The meaning of life is that it stops.
From Exorcist III: Legion:
Kinderman: The whole world is
a homicide victim, Father.
Would a God who is good
invent something like death?
Plainly speaking, it’s a lousy idea.
Dyer: You’re blaming God.
Kinderman: Who should I blame? Phil Rizzuto?
Dyer: You don’t want to live forever.
Kinderman: I do.
Dyer: You’d get bored.
Kinderman: I have hobbies.
“I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.”
Steve Shives (Five Stupid Things About Death):
Madame, all stories, if continued far enough, end in death, and he is no true-story teller who would keep that from you.
If you live each day as it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.
