A man is born alone and dies alone; And he experiences the good and bad consequences of his karma alone; And he goes alone to hell or the supreme abode.
Karma brings us ever back to rebirth, binds us to the wheel of births and deaths. Good karma drags us back as relentlessly as bad, and the chain which is wrought out of our virtues holds as firmly and as closely as that forged from our vices.
Whatever you do to the animals, you do to yourself.
If I used justice, you’d all be dead. The karma that you throw at me when you don’t like me, if I just let it come back, you’d all be destroyed in no time.
When a bird is alive, it eats ants. When bird dies, ants eat it. One tree can be made into million matchsticks but only one matchstick is enough to burn million trees. Circumstances can change at any time. You may be powerful today but time is more powerful than you.
Whether or not we believe in survival of consciousness after death, reincarnation, and karma, it has very serious implications for our behavior.
When I die, I hope to go to Heaven, whatever the Hell that is.
The purpose of morality is to teach you, not to suffer and die, but to enjoy yourself and live.
I could die for you. But I couldn’t, and wouldn’t, live for you.
Man’s unique reward, however, is that while animals survive by adjusting themselves to their background, man survives by adjusting his background to himself.
Achieving life is not the equivalent of avoiding death.
We were strange in love, her and I. Too wild to last, too rare to die.
I promise to live a life so rich of love that at the end I will not be so shy of death.
I hope to arrive to my death, late, in love, and a little drunk.
What is the age of death? Not even a couple of moments. Life is a progression, it’s not a matter of a day or two!
We can come to look upon the deaths of our enemies with as much regret as we feel for those of our friends, namely, when we miss their existence as witnesses to our success.
Sleep is the interest we have to pay on the capital which is called in at death; and the higher the rate of interest and the more regularly it is paid, the further the date of redemption is postponed.
Religion is the masterpiece of the art of animal training, for it trains people as to how they shall think.
Men are the devils of the earth, and the animals are the tormented souls.
Pleasure is never as pleasant as we expected it to be and pain is always more painful. The pain in the world always outweighs the pleasure. If you don’t believe it, compare the respective feelings of two animals, one of which is eating the other.
