Before you speak, it is necessary for you to listen, for God speaks in the silence of the heart.

“Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one's head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no to-morrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace.”

a very optimistic view to death :mrgreen:

Quotation confesses inferiority.
