Quote of the Day
No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it.

Since the day of my birth, my death began its walk. It is walking toward me, without hurrying.
Death is nothing, but to live defeated and inglorious is to die daily.
The idea is to die young as late as possible.
I hope it is true that a man can die and yet not only live in others but give them life, and not only life, but that great consciousness of life.
I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.
J. Robert Oppenheimer
The dead cannot cry out for justice. It is a duty of the living to do so for them.
