Life and Death as Metaphor – Part 2

I continue to gather these quotes on life and death as metaphor. Most were found on the WeCroak app:

  • “Our life is a faint tracing on the surface of mystery.”  —Annie Dillard
  • For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.”  —Kahlil Gibran
  • “Not success. Not growth. Not happiness. The cradle of your love of life … is death.”  —Stephen Jenkinson
  • “Life is a spark between two identical voids, the darkness before birth and the one after death.”  —Irvin D. Yalom
  • “Life is a succession of misunderstandings, leading us on to the final truth, the only truth.”  —Roberto Bolano
  • “We only get to be in our bodies for a limited time, why not celebrate the journey instead of merely riding it out until it’s over?”  —Jen Sincero
  • “Yet, in a bizarre, backwards way, death is the light by which the shadow of all of life’s meaning is measured. Without death, everything would feel inconsequential, all experience arbitrary, all metrics and values suddenly zero.”  —Mark Manson
  • “Death is our friend precisely because it brings us into absolute and passionate presence with all that is here, that is natural, that is love.”  —Rainer Maria Rilke
  • “Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more.”  —Shakespeare
