Pain, Death, Life

Another tangent. Feeling like sharing some quotes with you.

"Everyone is down on pain, because they forget something important about it: Pain is for the living. Only the dead don't feel it."
-- White Night, Jim Butcher
"Everyone dies alone. That's what it is. It's a door. It's one person wide. When you go through it, you do it alone. But it doesn't mean you have to be alone before you go through the door. And believe me, you aren't alone on the other side."
-- Dead Beat, Jim Butcher
"'And what would humans be without love?'
RARE, said Death."
-- Sourcery, Terry Pratchett
"The pencil was hovering. Around it, the world turned. It wrote things down, and then they got everywhere. The pen might not be mightier than the sword, but maybe the printing press was heavier than the siege weapon. Just a few words can change everything..."
-- Monstrous Regiment, Terry Pratchett
"And when the two hearts began to beat together, they filled the heavens with a terrible sound. For the first time, the gods knew fear. They tried to flee, but it was too late. The Klingon hearts destroyed the gods who created them and turned the heavens to ashes. To this very day, no one can oppose the beating of two Klingon hearts."
-- "You Are Cordially Invited", Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
