If I had my life to live over again
I should form the habit of nightly
composing myself to thoughts of death.
I would practice, as it were,
the remembrance of death.

There is no other practice which so intensifies life.

Death, when it approaches, ought not to take one by surprise.
It should be part of the full expectancy of life.
Without an ever-present sense of death,
Life is insipid.
You might as well live on the whites of eggs.

Muriel Spark

We do not possess imagination enough
to sense what we are missing.
