Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely.
Just as a candle cannot burn without fire,
men cannot live without a spiritual life.
On life's journey faith is nourishment, virtuous deeds are a shelter, wisdom is the light by day and right mindfulness is the protection by night. If a man lives a pure life, nothing can destroy him.

We are not content to pass away entirely from the scenes of

Love leaves a memory no one can steal
