Afterlife quotes by Raymond Moody
#1. I felt the question of the afterlife was the black hole of the personal universe: something for which substantial proof of existence had been offered but which had not yet been explored in the proper way by scientists and philosophers. #Quote by Raymond Moody
Afterlife quotes by Ruta Sepetys
#2. But unlike Mama, I would not go to heaven. My secrets padlocked the gates. I'd be a torn kite stuck in the dead branches of a tree, unable to fly. #Quote by Ruta Sepetys
Afterlife quotes by Ao Jyumonji
#3. When I die, I wonder what will happen to me. Is there some place like heaven, and will I be able to meet you there someday? I don't know. There's no way to know. No one knows what comes after death. But at the very least, we won't be able to talk until then.

There's a wide, deep and fast running river between the living and the dead. Once you cross that river, no matter what happens, you're never coming back. It's a one way trip. #Quote by Ao Jyumonji
Afterlife quotes by Heinrich Himmler
#4. Mohammed knew that most people are terribly cowardly and stupid. That is why he promised two beautiful women to every courageous warrior who dies in battle. This is the kind of language a soldier understands. When he believes that he will be welcomed in this manner in the afterlife, he will be willing to give his life, he will be enthusiastic about going to battle and not fear death. You may call this primitive and you may laugh about it, but it is based on deeper wisdom. A religion must speak a man's language. #Quote by Heinrich Himmler
Afterlife quotes by John K. Brown
#5. I used to be terrified of death. My grandfather was terminal in the hospital across from my high school, yet I never visited him. That fact still haunts me to this day. Years later, my arms were around my grandmother as she struggled with her last breaths. I told her we were with her and everything was going to be okay. She died as I held her tightly and I felt her body lose life. It was the most peaceful moment I ever experienced, and I felt joy for her. It was an emotional, intellectual, and spiritual moment for me. I wasn't afraid anymore ... One day years later I received the phone call every parent dreads. My daughter was in a serious automobile accident. As I raced to her I prepared myself for the news she had died. Once again, I felt an unexpected and profound emotion. She lived, but in the face of that horrifying time there was a strange overall calm. I realized, no matter what, everything was going to be okay. I remembered I wasn't afraid anymore. #Quote by John K. Brown
Afterlife quotes by Melissa Jennings
#6. The sun does not rise when you need it most. You rise instead. #Quote by Melissa Jennings
Afterlife quotes by N. T. Wright
#7. Of course there are people who think of 'heaven' as a kind of pie-in-the-sky dream of an afterlife to make the thought of dying less awful. No doubt that's a problem as old as the human race. #Quote by N. T. Wright
Afterlife quotes by Josh Langley
#8. Life has its insidious way of crawling its way back into your sphere and you're dumbed down again by so many distractions including work obligations, social niceties and mountains of clothes washing. #Quote by Josh Langley
Afterlife quotes by Christie Golden
#9. And in whatever afterlife your precious Light grants you, your parents will wish Queen Tiffin had miscarried. #Quote by Christie Golden
Afterlife quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#10. How long Archibald slept he could not have said. He woke some hours later with a vague feeling that a thunderstorm of unusual violence had broken out in his immediate neighborhood. But this, he realized as the mists of slumber cleared away, was an error. The noise which had disturbed him was not thunder but the sound of someone snoring. Snoring like the dickens. The walls seemed to be vibrating like the deck of an ocean liner....

His spirit was not so completely broken as to make him lie supinely down beneath that snoring. The sound filled him, as snoring fills every right-thinking man, with a seething resentment and a passionate yearning for justice, and he climbed out of bed with the intention of taking the proper steps through the recognized channels. It is the custom nowadays to disparage the educational methods of the English public school and to maintain that they are not practical and of a kind to fit the growing boy for the problems of afterlife. But you do learn one thing at a public school, and that is how to act when somebody starts snoring.

You jolly well grab a cake of soap and pop in and stuff it down the blighter's throat. And this is what Archibald proposed - God willing - to do. #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
Afterlife quotes by Dan   Barker
#11. The next time believers tell you that 'separation of church and state' does not appear in our founding document, tell them to stop using the word 'trinity.' The word 'trinity' appears nowhere in the bible. Neither does Rapture, or Second Coming, or Original Sin. If they are still unfazed (or unphrased), by this, then add Omniscience, Omnipresence, Supernatural,Transcendence, Afterlife, Deity, Divinity, Theology, Monotheism, Missionary, Immaculate Conception, Christmas, Christianity, Evangelical, Fundamentalist, Methodist, Catholic, Pope, Cardinal, Catechism, Purgatory, Penance, Transubstantiation, Excommunication, Dogma, Chastity, Unpardonable Sin, Infallibility, Inerrancy, Incarnation, Epiphany, Sermon, Eucharist, the Lord's Prayer, Good Friday, Doubting Thomas, Advent, Sunday School, Dead Sea, Golden Rule, Moral, Morality, Ethics, Patriotism, Education, Atheism, Apostasy, Conservative (Liberal is in), Capital Punishment, Monogamy, Abortion, Pornography, Homosexual, Lesbian, Fairness, Logic, Republic, Democracy, Capitalism, Funeral, Decalogue, or Bible. #Quote by Dan Barker
Afterlife quotes by Darynda Jones
#12. I hated funerals. I hated any rite of passage that emphasized how fleeting and fragile our physical lives were. I hated that children died. Even knowing what I knew about life and the afterlife and the momentary condition of our existence on earth, I hated it. It was better on the other side. I knew that. I'd been told by countless departed, but I hated this part nonetheless. And just for the record, telling the living how their loved ones were in a better place rarely helped. Nothing helped apart from time, and even then, the long-term prognosis was sketchy. Most recovered. Many did not. Not really. Not fully. #Quote by Darynda Jones
Afterlife quotes by Darrel Ray
#13. With the concept of an afterlife, religion creates a portal to infect people by means of terror and fear of death. If one has no concept of an afterlife, then fear of eternal punishment becomes an effective way to convince people of the need to perform specific rituals and live a certain way. #Quote by Darrel Ray
Afterlife quotes by Sherry D Ficklin
#14. Keep flapping your lips and you'll spend the rest of your afterlife haunting hipsters at Starbucks. #Quote by Sherry D Ficklin
Afterlife quotes by Saidiya V. Hartman
#15. If slavery persists as an issue in the political life of black America, it is not because of an antiquarian obsession with bygone days or the burden of a too-long memory, but because black lives are still imperiled and devalued by a racial calculus and a political arithmetic that were entrenched centuries ago. This is the afterlife of slavery--skewed life chances, limited access to health and education, premature death, incarceration, and impoverishment. #Quote by Saidiya V. Hartman
Afterlife quotes by H. L. Balcomb
#16. The flowers' beauty drew her closer to them like a magnetic force. She felt compelled to walk a little faster. #Quote by H. L. Balcomb
Afterlife quotes by Maurice Sendak
#17. I don't believe in an afterlife but I still fully expect to see my brother again. #Quote by Maurice Sendak
Afterlife quotes by Anthony Trollope
#18. I do not think myself to be a worm, and a grub, grass of the field fit only to be burned, a clod, a morsel of putrid atoms that should be thrown to the dungheap, ready for the nethermost pit. Nor if I did should I therefore expect to sit with Angels and Archangels. #Quote by Anthony Trollope
Afterlife quotes by Mark Ireland
#19. Perhaps the day will come when Western science is able to confirm the existence of immaterial forces and realms. Compelling research in the field of parapsychology indirectly points to this possibility, yet most people in mainstream science can't bring themselves to consider the implications. #Quote by Mark Ireland
Afterlife quotes by Francis Chan
#20. It's not that this lifestyle should be crazy to us. It should be the only thing that makes sense. Giving up everything and sacrificing everything we can for the afterlife is logical. "Crazy" is living a safe life and storing up things while trying to enjoy our time on earth, knowing that any millisecond God could take your life. To me that is crazy, and that is radical. The crazy ones are the ones who live life like there is no God. To me that is insanity. #Quote by Francis Chan
Afterlife quotes by W. H. Auden
#21. If it form the one landscape that we the inconstant ones
Are consistently homesick for, this is chiefly
Because it dissolves in water. #Quote by W. H. Auden
Afterlife quotes by Douglas Adams
#22. He hoped and prayed that there wasn't an afterlife. Then he realized there was a contradiction involved here and merely hoped that there wasn't an afterlife. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Afterlife quotes by Rajiv Joseph
#23. At first it's pretty cool: the limitless fruit of knowledge hanging low in your path. Then you realize it's the only thing to eat around here. #Quote by Rajiv Joseph
Afterlife quotes by William Samuel Johnson
#24. It seems to be the fate of man to seek all his consolations in futurity. #Quote by William Samuel Johnson
Afterlife quotes by H. L. Balcomb
#25. He was humbled by her infinite love toward him - it shone through even in his afterlife. #Quote by H. L. Balcomb
Afterlife quotes by Betty Smith
#26. I will not speak falsely and say to you: 'Do not grieve for me when I go.' I have loved my children and tried to be a good mother and it is right that my children grieve for me. But let your grief be gentle and brief. And let resignation creep into it. Know that I shall be happy. I shall see face to face the great saints I have loved all my life. #Quote by Betty Smith
Afterlife quotes by Margaret Atwood
#27. Symbolic thinking of any kind would signal downfall, in Crake's view. Next they'd be inventing idols, and funerals, and grave goods, and the afterlife, and sin, and Linear B, and kings, and then slavery and war. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Afterlife quotes by Dennis Higgins
#28. I once courted a Victorian lass in old Chicago. I had to leave her, it just wasn't our time. #Quote by Dennis Higgins
Afterlife quotes by Kate McGahan
#29. It is through the heart that we see, hear and feel most clearly. It is like a radio signal. When it is strong the heart is like a megaphone and I get your message loud and clear. You message echoes throughout the universe when it comes from the heart on the wings of intention and faith. It is the most direct line of communication in existence once you filter out the "interference" of worry and doubt in your head, the thoughts that don't matter and only serve to block the reception. Your intention is the force, love is the connection and faith is the key that opens the door between you and me. #Quote by Kate McGahan
Afterlife quotes by Remy De Gourmont
#30. Well, suppose we remain upon earth, after all? Suppose we bravely accept the death of our dreams at the same time as the death of our bodies? This beyond is decidedly uncertain, quite vague and mobile. I do not believe that it exists everywhere; I believe that it is nowhere except in our infantile imaginations. Born with us, it will end at the same moment that we do, to be born anew in our posterity. The beyond is the earthly tomorrow, as we bequeath it to our heirs and as they modify it by their efforts and in accordance with their tastes. #Quote by Remy De Gourmont
Afterlife quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#31. What do babies dream of? She must be dreaming of the before-life, just as I dream of the afterlife. #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Afterlife quotes by Maryrose Wood
#32. She had chosen Dante because she found the rhyme scheme pleasingly jaunty, but she realized too late that the Inferno's tale of sinners being cruelly punished in the afterlife was much too bloody and disturbing to be suitable for young minds. Penelope could tell this by the way the children hung on her every word and demanded "More, more!" each time she reached the end of a canto and tried to stop. #Quote by Maryrose Wood
Afterlife quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#33. Being a Humanist means trying to behave decently without expectation of rewards or punishment after you are dead. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Afterlife quotes by John Edward
#34. My view of the afterlife is that it's made of different levels, depending on how spiritual a life we live. #Quote by John Edward
Afterlife quotes by Tim Minchin
#35. If anyone can show me one example in the history of the world of a single spiritual person who has been able to show either empirically or logically the existence of a higher power with any consciousness or interest in the human race or ability to punish or reward humans for their moral choices or that there is any reason other than fear to believe in any version of an afterlife, I will give you my piano, one of my legs and my wife. #Quote by Tim Minchin
Afterlife quotes by Gary Shteyngart
#36. We know summer is the height of of being alive. We don't believe in God or the prospect of an afterlife mostly, so we know that we're only given eighty summers or so per lifetime, and each one has to be better then the last, has to encompass a trip to that arts center up at Bard, a seemingly mellow game of badminton over at some yahoo's Vermont cottage, and a cool, wet, slightly dangerous kayak trip down an unforgiving river. Otherwise, how would you know that you have lived your summertime best? What is you missed out on some morsel of shaded nirvana? #Quote by Gary Shteyngart
Afterlife quotes by Jacqueline E. Smith
#37. Michael had learned the hard way that nothing good came from interfering in the affairs of the afterlife. #Quote by Jacqueline E. Smith
Afterlife quotes by Michael Grant
#38. I'm sorry for hurting you. I know I did. I'm most likely dead now, and I guess if there's any kind of fairness in the afterlife I'm probably in hell getting roasted. But if that's where I am, I want you to know, I still love you. Always did. Love, Caine #Quote by Michael Grant
Afterlife quotes by Randy Alcorn
#39. Since in Heaven we'll finally experience life at its best, it would be more accurate to call our present existence the beforelife rather than to call what follows the afterlife. #Quote by Randy Alcorn
Afterlife quotes by Debra Messing
#40. It's always been really important for me to try to maintain a balanced life, professional and personal, and this was absolutely something that my husband and I had hoped for. #Quote by Debra Messing
Afterlife quotes by Seth Stevenson
#41. As I continue to sip at the chest-warming liquor, entering ever-deeper states of inebriation, a mauldin thought begins to take shape in my whiskey-addled skull. My notion is this: We are each of us our own container ship, transporting our various cargoes through the ocean of life. At ports along the way, we may stop and pick up a new lover, a spouse, a child. At other ports we unload precious items - friends move away, relationships end, parents die. Even when we're lost in the deepest fog, we must try to keep our watch, not be the cause of any tragic collisions, and to do what we can to keep our cargo safe. In the end, of course, your ship rusts out and is not longer seaworthy. So, I suppose, in this analogy, the afterlife equates to being bought by a Greek shipping line. #Quote by Seth Stevenson
Afterlife quotes by Rachael Taylor
#42. I can see my ghost trying to get that Academy Award, forever stuck in a casting office. Can you imagine? I've spent enough time in audition rooms. I don't want to be doing that in my afterlife. #Quote by Rachael Taylor
Afterlife quotes by Prabhukrishna M
#43. In life we are separated by boundaries political, cultural, ethical, linguistical and psychical. But in death we are all united, for all afterlife is similarly unknown #Quote by Prabhukrishna M
Afterlife quotes by Colum McCann
#44. There's a part of me that thinks perhaps we go on existing in a place even after we've left it. #Quote by Colum McCann
Afterlife quotes by Skyla Madi
#45. I'll never tire of her warm smile or bright green eyes. She's mine, in sickness and in health, till death do us part-scratch that- even in the afterlife she's mine and I'll fight any spirity-ghost bastard that attempts to fuck this up. #Quote by Skyla Madi
Afterlife quotes by John Bolton
#46. When you have a regime that would be happier in the afterlife than in this life, this is not a regime that is subject to classic theories of deterrence. #Quote by John Bolton
Afterlife quotes by Criss Jami
#47. Love in this life is expanded by our anticipation of the next life. Those who love under God are never satisfied with small love, or love bound by the flaws of human emotion. Those who love under God dream of another life where they can experience it and live it in God's perfect form, so they seek to build it in this life as much as possible. #Quote by Criss Jami
Afterlife quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#48. I wrote a "holy book" as a fun way to test if I could and see if people could believe in it, before long people told me they were seeing visions of the gods and afterlife I had described. People had really strong faith in the scriptures I had written. Of course I insisted they were inspired. And they believed it. You can't imagine how gullible people can be #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Afterlife quotes by Jason Medina
#49. You know? Ain't it ironic how we live our entire lives without the luxury of time, only to spend an eternity in death. #Quote by Jason Medina
Afterlife quotes by Thomm Quackenbush
#50. Natural law has decreed it so. Isn't death as much a part of the flow as life? Why fight it? Because maybe the flow splashes into a bottomless pit past that blind turn. #Quote by Thomm Quackenbush
Afterlife quotes by Deborah Feldman
#51. I'd rather believe in reincarnation than hell. The idea of an afterlife is much so more tolerable when returning is an option. #Quote by Deborah Feldman
Afterlife quotes by Ronald Reagan
#52. They don't subscribe to our sense of morality; they don't believe in an afterlife; they don't believe in a God or religion. And the only morality they recognize, therefore, is what will advance the cause or socialism. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Afterlife quotes by John Green
#53. People, I thought, wanted security. They couldn't bear the idea of death being a big black nothing, couldn't bear the thought of their loved ones not existing, and couldn't even imagine themselves not existing. I finally decided that people believed in an afterlife because they couldn't bear not to. #Quote by John Green
Afterlife quotes by Philip Pullman
#54. He meant the Kingdom was over, the Kingdom of Heaven, it was all finished. We shouldn't live as if it mattered more than this life in this world, because where we are is always the most important place ... We have to be all those difficult things like cheerful and kind and curious and patient, and we've got to study and think and work hard, all of us, in all our different world, and then we'll build ... The Republic of Heaven. #Quote by Philip Pullman
Afterlife quotes by Veronica Roth
#55. I also don't believe that whatever come after life depends on my correctly reciting a list of my transgressions-that sounds too much like an Erudite afterlife to me, all accuracy and no feeling. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Afterlife quotes by John Updike
#56. In fact we do not try to picture the afterlife, nor is it our selves in our nervous tics and optical flecks that we wish to perpetuate; it is the self as the window on the world that we can't bear to thinkof shutting. My mind when I was a boy of ten or eleven sent up its silent scream at the thought of future aeons
at the thought of the cosmic party going on without me. The yearning for an afterlife is the opposite of selfish: it is love and praise of the world that we are privileged, in this complex interval of light, to witness and experience. #Quote by John Updike
Afterlife quotes by Agatha Christie
#57. But what really happens after you are dead - that is what I want to know?

I cannot tell you Renisenb. You should ask a priest these questions.

He would just give me the usual answers. I want to know.

We shall none of us know until we are dead ourselves. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Afterlife quotes by Isaac Asimov
#58. I don't believe in an afterlife, so I don't have to spend my whole life fearing hell, or fearing heaven even more. For whatever the tortures of hell, I think the boredom of heaven would be even worse. #Quote by Isaac Asimov
Afterlife quotes by Howard Norman
#59. In The Highland Book of Platitudes, Marlais, there's an entry that reads, "Not all ghosts earn our memory in equal measure." I think about this sometimes. I think especially about the word "earn," because it implies an ongoing willful effort on the part of the dead, so that if you believe the platitude, you have to believe in the afterlife, don't you? Following that line of thought, there seem to be certain people - call them ghosts - with the ability to insinuate themselves into your life with more belligerence and exactitude than others - it's their employment and expertise. #Quote by Howard Norman
Afterlife quotes by Timothy Keller
#60. People only get in the afterlife what they have most wanted-either to have God as Savior and Master or to be their own Saviors and Masters. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Afterlife quotes by Peter David
#61. I woke up dead.
Not only dead...but in hell.
I had always been somewhat sketchy on what the afterlife - were there actually such a thing - would be like for a person such as I. From all accounts and all my imaginings, I figured it would be one of two things. Either I would be surrounded by great, burning masses that were endlessly immolating souls in torment... or else I would find myself trapped within my own mind as a helpless bystander, condemned to watching me live out my life over and over again and powerless to do anything to change any of it. When idle speculation prompted me to dwell on these two options, I would find myself drawn invariably to the former, since the later was just too hideous to contemplate.
I was almost afraid to open my eyes, because once I did, I would know one way or the other. Perhaps I could have just lain there forever. Perhaps I was supposed to. Perhaps that was my true condemnation: to simply reside in hell with my eyes closed afraid of opening them lest matters deteriorate even further than they already had. This, in turn, made me dwell on the fact that every time I had believed things couldn't get worse, they promptly had done so with almost gleeful enthusiasm . #Quote by Peter David
Afterlife quotes by Sophie Hardcastle
#62. The afterlife is not so much a place but rather what happens to me, to the others left behind, after Ben's life. #Quote by Sophie Hardcastle
Afterlife quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#63. About belief or lack of belief in an afterlife: Some of you may know that I am neither Christian nor Jewish nor Buddist, nor a conventionally religious person of any sort. I am a humanist, which mean, in part, that I have tried to behave decently without any expectation of rewards or punishments after I'm dead. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Afterlife quotes by Robin Hobb
#64. As I apologized to her a flicker of panic raced through me and then faded away. There wasn't enough life left in me to panic. I'd made a mistake and I was dying. Apparently not even a Speck afterlife was available to me. I'd simply stop being. Apparently I hadn't died correctly. Oops. #Quote by Robin Hobb
Afterlife quotes by Fay Wray
#65. My children didn't when they were little because I thought that they had to be of a certain age. I hoped they liked me well enough not to want to see me in that sort of a spot. #Quote by Fay Wray
Afterlife quotes by Armond White
#66. If critics and fanboys weren't suckers for simplistic nihilism and high-pressure marketing, Afterlife would be universally acclaimed as a visionary feat, superior to Inception and Avatar on every level. #Quote by Armond White
Afterlife quotes by R. Buckminster Fuller
#67. We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims. #Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller
Afterlife quotes by Jarvis Cocker
#68. I would like to believe in an afterlife; it makes things more palatable. But I'm not banking on it. #Quote by Jarvis Cocker
Afterlife quotes by Amy LaPalme
#69. McKenzie was Caroline's primary wingman. They had matching Coach bags to prove it. #Quote by Amy LaPalme
Afterlife quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#70. About once or twice every month I engage in public debates with those whose pressing need it is to woo and to win the approval of supernatural beings. Very often, when I give my view that there is no supernatural dimension, and certainly not one that is only or especially available to the faithful, and that the natural world is wonderful enough - and even miraculous enough if you insist - I attract pitying looks and anxious questions. How, in that case, I am asked, do I find meaning and purpose in life? How does a mere and gross materialist, with no expectation of a life to come, decide what, if anything, is worth caring about?

Depending on my mood, I sometimes but not always refrain from pointing out what a breathtakingly insulting and patronizing question this is. (It is on a par with the equally subtle inquiry: Since you don't believe in our god, what stops you from stealing and lying and raping and killing to your heart's content?) Just as the answer to the latter question is: self-respect and the desire for the respect of others - while in the meantime it is precisely those who think they have divine permission who are truly capable of any atrocity - so the answer to the first question falls into two parts. A life that partakes even a little of friendship, love, irony, humor, parenthood, literature, and music, and the chance to take part in battles for the liberation of others cannot be called 'meaningless' except if the person living it is also an existential #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Afterlife quotes by Neil Gaiman
#71. If this was the afterlife, he thought, it was a lot like the House on the Rock: part diorama, part nightmare. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Afterlife quotes by Kent Haruf
#72. I've come to believe in some kind of afterlife. A return to our true selves, a spirit self. We're just in this physical body till we go back to spirit. #Quote by Kent Haruf
Afterlife quotes by Alain De Botton
#73. I never wavered in my certainty that God did not exist. I was simply liberated by the thought that there might be a way to engage with religion without having to subscribe to its supernatural content - a way, to put it in more abstract terms, to think about Fathers without upsetting my respectful memory of my own father. I recognized that my continuing resistance to theories of an afterlife or of heavenly residents was no justification for giving up on the music, buildings, prayers, rituals, feasts, shrines, pilgrimages, communal meals and illustrated manuscripts of the faiths. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Afterlife quotes by Alice McDermott
#74. It made it easier that they both believed in the simplest kind of afterlife - that my father could say to her, even in those last days, joking but without irony, 'You're going to get tired of hearing from me. I'll be asking you for this that and the other thing twenty-four hours a day. JESUS, you'll be saying, here comes another prayer from Dennis.' And my mother would reply, her voice hoarse with pain, 'Jesus might advise you to take in a movie once in a while. Give your poor wife a rest. She's in heaven, after all.'
It was a joke, but they believed it, and they believed, too, I think, that their love, their loyalty to one another, was no longer a matter of chance or happenstance, but a condition of their existence no more voluntary or escapable than the pace of their blood, the influx of perception...There was, in their anticipation of what was to come, a queer self-satisfaction. It was clear now that they would love each other until the last moment of her life - hadn't that been the goal from the beginning? They would love each other even beyond the days they had lived together; was there any greater triumph? #Quote by Alice McDermott
Afterlife quotes by Stephen Fry
#75. Humanism inspires a lot of enthusiasm for everyday life and urges people to be better to one another, to work towards a better future and a common good. If I believed there was an afterlife I would have so much less motive for filling this life with every experience that is offered up to me. #Quote by Stephen Fry
Afterlife quotes by John Green
#76. I was surprised. I'd always associated belief in heaven with, frankly, a kind of intellectual disengagement. But Gus wasn't dumb. #Quote by John Green
Afterlife quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#77. Well, we can't say any more than we can say there is no god, there is no afterlife. We can only say there is no persuasive evidence for or argument for it. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Afterlife quotes by Socrates Trans. G.M.A. Grube
#78. The one aim of those who practice philosophy in the proper manner is to practice for dying and death. #Quote by Socrates Trans. G.M.A. Grube
Afterlife quotes by Emanuel Swedenborg
#79. The nature of heaven is to provide a place there for all who lead good lives, no matter what their religion may be. #Quote by Emanuel Swedenborg
Afterlife quotes by Claudia Gray
#80. I went to him in the doorway and embraced him tightly.
"Thank you," I whispered. "You've done so much for us, and we've done nothing for you."
"Don't say that." Vic's hands patted my back. "You're my friends. Nothing else to it. #Quote by Claudia Gray
Afterlife quotes by Henry Miller
#81. Of course you don't die. Nobody dies. Death doesn't exist. You only reach a new level of vision, a new realm of consciousness, a new unknown world. #Quote by Henry Miller
Afterlife quotes by Madame De Stael
#82. Divine Wisdom, intending to detain us some time on earth, has done well to cover with a veil the prospect of the life to come; for if our sight could clearly distinguish the opposite bank, who would remain on this tempestuous coast of time? #Quote by Madame De Stael
Afterlife quotes by Ali Ibn Abi Talib
#83. Do for this life as if you live forever, do for the afterlife as if you die tomorrow. #Quote by Ali Ibn Abi Talib
Afterlife quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#84. You can't spend his money if you're dead."
"I'll acquire expensive habits in the afterlife. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Afterlife quotes by Sorin Cerin
#85. We cannot conceive death as anything else than the afterlife because we cannot comprehend death unless we live. #Quote by Sorin Cerin
Afterlife quotes by Michael Monroe
#86. It was one of those dreams from which she woke up depressed about her reality, filled with a longing that pulled at her insides, wishing the dream could have lasted forever, or at least much longer than it had. #Quote by Michael Monroe
Afterlife quotes by Margaret Atwood
#87. But all doors used regularly are doors to the afterlife. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Afterlife quotes by John Smith
#88. Whether it is seen in personal terms or trans-personal terms, whether it is Heaven or Nirvana or Happy Hunting Ground or the Garden of Paradise, the weight and authority of tradition maintains that death is just an alteration in our state of consciousness, and that the quality of our continued existence in the afterlife depends on the quality of our living here and now. #Quote by John Smith
Afterlife quotes by J.D. Stroube
#89. Why is it that people talk about death, as if it is a part of life, when it is entirely separate? Someone passes on into the never ending void, where the living aren't allowed. We can't see, hear, touch or feel those who have succumbed to the eternal sleep, but we comfort ourselves with thoughts of a grander plan. We tell ourselves that they are in a better place, but what could be greater than breathing the same air, as those loved ones? Their pain may be gone, but pleasure can only be when it is stark against the hurt that life brings? #Quote by J.D. Stroube
Afterlife quotes by Joaquin Phoenix
#90. I don't believe in god. I don't believe in an afterlife. I don't believe in soul. I don't believe in anything. I think it's totally right for people to have their own beliefs if it makes them happy, but to me it's a pretty preposterous idea. #Quote by Joaquin Phoenix
Afterlife quotes by Walter Savage Landor
#91. Belief in the future life is the appetite of reason. #Quote by Walter Savage Landor
Afterlife quotes by Mary Roach
#92. I am very much out of my element here. There are moments, listening to the conversations going on around me, when I feel I am going to lose my mind. Earlier today, I heard someone say the words, "I felt at one with the divine source of creation." Mary Roach on a conducted tour of Hades. I had to fight the urge to push back my chair and start screaming: STAND BACK! ALL OF YOU! I'VE GOT AN ARTHUR FINDLAY BOX CUTTER! Instead, I quietly excused myself and went to the bar, to commune with spirits I know how to relate to. #Quote by Mary Roach
Afterlife quotes by Woody Allen
#93. I do not believe in an afterlife, although I am bringing a change of underwear. #Quote by Woody Allen
Afterlife quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#94. The clear awareness of having been born into a losing struggle need not lead one into despair. I do not especially like the idea that one day I shall be tapped on the shoulder and informed, not that the party is over but that it is most assuredly going on - only henceforth in my absence. (It's the second of those thoughts: the edition of the newspaper that will come out on the day after I have gone, that is the more distressing.) Much more horrible, though, would be the announcement that the party was continuing forever, and that I was forbidden to leave. Whether it was a hellishly bad party or a party that was perfectly heavenly in every respect, the moment that it became eternal and compulsory would be the precise moment that it began to pall. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Afterlife quotes by Rachel Vincent
#95. So you're saying the afterlife is hard on the libido? FYI, that's probably not a good bullet point for your recruiting brochure. #Quote by Rachel Vincent
Afterlife quotes by W.S. Merwin
#96. All day the stars watch from long ago
my mother said I am going now
when you are alone you will be all right
whether or not you know you will know
look at the old house in the dawn rain
all the flowers are forms of water
the sun reminds them through a white cloud
touches the patchwork spread on the hill
the washed colors of the afterlife
that lived there long before you were born
see how they wake without a question
even though the whole world is burning #Quote by W.S. Merwin
Afterlife quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#97. After your death, you will be what you were before your birth. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Afterlife quotes by Kevin Ansbro
#98. Poppy, a chronic insomniac in her first life, since found that sleep arrived easily, washing over her in a soporific tide that carried with it the flotsam of ambrosial dreams. #Quote by Kevin Ansbro
Afterlife quotes by Darynda Jones
#100. Hey, pumpkin head," she said, her ancient smile bright, albeit toothless. "I heard you stumble your way to the bathroom, so I figured I'd earn my keep and make us some coffee. Sure looks like you could use some."
I grimaced. "Really? How sweet." Damn. Aunt Lillian couldn't really make coffee. I sat at the counter and pretended to drink a cup.
"Is it too strong?" she asked.
"No way, Aunt Lil, you make the best."
Pretending to drink coffee was similar to faking an orgasm. Where in the supernatural afterlife was the fun in that? #Quote by Darynda Jones
Afterlife quotes by Michael L. Martin Jr.
#101. Some would do just about anything for an exodus. #Quote by Michael L. Martin Jr.
Afterlife quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#102. The most important segments of many religious dogmas are not their ethical principles, but rather factual statements such as 'God exists', 'the soul is punished for its sins in the afterlife', 'the Bible was written by a deity rather than by humans', 'the Pope is never wrong'. #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
Afterlife quotes by Philip Jose Farmer
#103. By now you must have accepted the fact that your religion , in fact, none of the Earthly religions, truly knew what the afterlife would be. All made guesses, and then established these as articles of faith . Though, in a sense, some were near the mark, if you accept their revelations as symbolic . #Quote by Philip Jose Farmer
Afterlife quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#104. Theology is like assuming that there is a black cat in a dark room where in fact there is no black cat, and endeavoring to study the cat's properties and how it may have evolved from its ancestors. #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Afterlife quotes by Kamil Ali
#105. The Kalambo River and Waterfall exemplify life and afterlife: From birth at its source, the river twists and turns to overcome hurdles on its way to enhance the life of others before falling off the edge in death to flow quietly into Lake Tanganyika, while it's mist rises to heaven, freed from the burden of the body of water that held it. #Quote by Kamil Ali
Afterlife quotes by Sri Aurobindo
#106. Metaphysical thinking will always no doubt be a strong element in her mentality, and it is to be hoped that she will never lose her great, her sovereign powers in that direction. #Quote by Sri Aurobindo
Afterlife quotes by Gilbert Morris
#107. I make a joke of it, but ... but I'm afraid of death." He straightened up and turned to look into Joseph's eyes. Joseph saw the fear there and was shocked by the intensity of it. "Are you afraid to die, Joseph?"
Joseph considered for a moment, then shook his head. "I'm not afraid to now, but then I'm not dying now. When I come to that moment, I will probably be ... what's the right word? Maybe frightened in a way that you're frightened when an experience lies before you you've never had.
"No more than that?"
"I hope not. #Quote by Gilbert Morris
Afterlife quotes by Kate McGahan
#108. You wonder why you can't see me,
Sense me, feel me…?
When you are outpouring your emotion,
it is like me trying to climb up a waterfall
To get to you.
But if you are calm and have faith in me,
I can sail right over to you
On the still waters of your soul. #Quote by Kate McGahan
Afterlife quotes by John Green
#109. I still think that maybe the "afterlife" is just something we made up to ease the pain of loss, to make our time in the labyrinth bearable. Maybe we are just matter, and matter gets recycled #Quote by John Green
Afterlife quotes by Rick Riordan
#110. We had enough quite enough snobbery in this world without exporting it to the hereafter. #Quote by Rick Riordan

#112. Our moneyed men have ruled us for the past thirty years. Under the flag of the slaveholder they hoped to destroy our liberty. #Quote by Denis Kearney

Afterlife quotes by David Eagleman
#114. All creation necessarily ends in this: Creators, powerless, fleeing from the things they have wrought. #Quote by David Eagleman
Afterlife quotes by Pramoedya Ananta Toer
#115. Animals are not supposed to have the power to reason and therefore don't care whether there is life after death. But imagine animals trying to cheer themselves up in the same way that our own ancestors did when faced with death, by believing that there is life after death. How would they resolve the problem that in the afterlife they might once more be eaten by man? #Quote by Pramoedya Ananta Toer
Afterlife quotes by Sam Harris
#116. Criticizing a person's ideas about God and the afterlife is thought to be impolitic in a way that criticizing his ideas about physics or history is not. #Quote by Sam Harris
Afterlife quotes by Dean Koontz
#117. Stormy Llewellyn, a woman of unconventional views, believes instead that our passage through this world is intended to toughen us for the next life. She says that our honesty, integrity, courage, and determined resistance to evil are evaluated at the end of our days here, and that if we come up to muster, we will be conscripted into an army of souls engaged in some great mission in the next world. Those who fail the test simply cease to exist. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Afterlife quotes by Stephanie Arnold
#118. You only live once. Maybe twice. #Quote by Stephanie Arnold
Afterlife quotes by Michael Chabon
#119. The other day as I was stepping out of Star Grocery on Claremont Avenue with some pork ribs under my arm, the Berkeley sky cloudless, a smell of jasmine in the air, a car driving by with its window rolled down, trailing a sweet ache of the Allman Brothers' "Melissa," it struck me that in order to have reached only the midpoint of my life I will need to live to be 92. That's pretty old. If you live to be ninety-two, you've done well for yourself. I'd like to be optimistic, and I try to take care of my health, but none of my grandparents even made it past 76, three killed by cancer, one by Parkinson's disease. If I live no longer than any of them did, I have at most thirty years left, which puts me around sixty percent of the way through my time.

I am comfortable with the idea of mortality, or at least I always have been, up until now. I never felt the need to believe in heaven or an afterlife. It has been decades since I stopped believing-a belief that was never more than fitful and self-serving to begin with-in the possibility of reincarnation of the soul. I'm not totally certain where I stand on the whole "soul" question. Though I certainly feel as if I possess one, I'm inclined to disbelieve in its existence. I can live with that contradiction, as with the knowledge that my time is finite, and growing shorter by the day. It's just that lately, for the first time, that shortening has become perceptible. I can feel each tiny skyward lurch of the balloo #Quote by Michael Chabon
Afterlife quotes by Margaret Drabble
#120. It is to be doubted whether anybody who said good-bye to Bert had any faith or interest whatsoever in the life everlasting. This life had, some of them thought, been quite bad enough. #Quote by Margaret Drabble
Afterlife quotes by Muhammad Ankan
#121. Death is only the death of death not the death of life. #Quote by Muhammad Ankan
Afterlife quotes by Ali Larter
#122. It [RESIDENT EVIL: AFTERLIFE] has definitely been the biggest learning curve for me. As an actor, whenever I start on a movie, different things that I perform in ask for different skill sets. And this one is definitely the technological side of it. You have to hit your mark. You can't weave back and forth because your nose is jutting at you in 3-D. It's really been learning how to do that and also it's exciting to be on the forefront of this technology. #Quote by Ali Larter
Afterlife quotes by David Cronenberg
#123. My understanding of life is very existential. I think that we are our bodies. There's nothing else, and when we die, that's it. No afterlife. #Quote by David Cronenberg
Afterlife quotes by Diet Eman
#124. And here we see again that we do not decide our own lives. Dieneke, even if we won't see each other again on earth, we will never be sorry for what we did, that we took this stand. #Quote by Diet Eman
Afterlife quotes by Paul Von Hindenburg
#125. In spite of certain distressing but isolated occurrences in the last battle, I certainly hoped that the Army would be in a position to continue to hold out. #Quote by Paul Von Hindenburg
Afterlife quotes by Stephen King
#126. The workman cut to the left, still laying on his horn, and roared around the drunkenly weaving limousine. He invited the driver of the limo to perform an illegal sex act on himself. To engage in oral congress with various rodents and birds. He articulated his own proposal that all persons of Negro blood return to their native continent. He expressed his sincere belief in the position the limo driver's soul would occupy in the afterlife. He finished by saying that he believed he had met the limodriver's mother in a New Orleans house of prostitution. #Quote by Stephen King
Afterlife quotes by Jaron Lanier
#127. A file on a hard disk does indeed contain information of the kind that objectively exists. The fact that the bits are discernible instead of being scrambled into mush - the way heat scrambles things - is what makes them bits.

But if the bits can potentially mean something to someone, they can only do so if they are experienced. When that happens, a commonality of culture is enacted between the storer and the retriever of the bits. Experience is the only process that can de-alienate information.

Information of the kind that purportedly wants to be free is nothing but a shadow of our own minds, and wants nothing on its own. It will not suffer if it doesn't get what it wants.

But if you want to make the transition from the old religion, where you hope God will give you an afterlife, to the new religion, where you hope to become immortal by getting uploaded into a computer, then you have to believe information is real and alive. So for you, it will be important to redesign human institutions like art, the economy, and the law to reinforce the perception that information is alive. You demand that the rest of us live in your new conception of a state religion. You need us to deify information to reinforce your faith. #Quote by Jaron Lanier
Afterlife quotes by Wildbow
#128. Then I think about how you went out, and I think… you know, it doesn't balance out. One selfless deed, after all the shit you did? No. But that's your cross to bear, not mine. I don't believe in an afterlife or anything like that, but, well, I guess that's the mark you left. When we die, all that's left are the memories, the place we take in people's hearts. #Quote by Wildbow
Afterlife quotes by Maria V. Snyder
#129. I reached out blindly, clasped a warm hand, faded from life and into peace.
Well, that was what was supposed to happen ... Except an annoying, distracting tug kept pulling and yanking ...
When I woke, I thought I had overcome the pull and stayed in the afterlife. Whiteness billowed over me in soft waves. My body was cushioned and cocooned in warmth. I stretched my legs and then tried to raise my arms, but my left arm wouldn't budge. Rolling over, I encountered a number of very unpleasant realities.
I was alive. I was in a room. I was naked except for a blood-stained bandage wrapped tight around my stomach. Kerrick lay beside me. And his hand trapped mine.
Kill. Me. Now. #Quote by Maria V. Snyder
Afterlife quotes by Timothy J. Keller
#130. As C. S. Lewis says in The Great Divorce, if in this life you never say to God, "Thy will be done," then eventually God will say to you for the afterlife, "All right, then thy will be done." If you want freedom from God, you will quite justly get what you hope for. #Quote by Timothy J. Keller
Afterlife quotes by John Green
#131. Most Christians and Muslims believe in a heaven and a hell, though there's a lot of disagreement within both religions over what, exactly, will get you into one afterlife or the other. #Quote by John Green
Afterlife quotes by Kaylin McFarren
#132. Revenge requires taking oneself apart from the noise of men and of things, even from what resembles them; only the twisted soul remains. The consequences of my actions can not be remedied nor can they be wiped away. Eight deaths I must atone for in the afterlife. I'm cursed in both worlds. But one more job and my obligation ends. One more kill and I am free. – Akira Sato, Twisted Threads #Quote by Kaylin McFarren
Afterlife quotes by Sean Williams
#133. He had returned to the source of the river that ran steadily through the galaxy, invigorating and sweeping up the dead as it passed. #Quote by Sean Williams
Afterlife quotes by Rick Riordan
#134. The afterlife looks different to every soul," he said, "depending on whatthey believe. For that guy, Egypt must've made a strong impression when he was young , maybe."
"And if someone doesn't believe in any afterlife?" i asked.
Walt gave me a sad look. "Then that's what they experience. #Quote by Rick Riordan

Afterlife quotes by Massad Ayoob
#139. The religious fanatic who practices terrorism cannot be reasoned with, because there is nothing you can threaten him with, and no alternative you can offer him that is more palatable than his genuine belief that if he dies fighting you, he will be greatly rewarded in afterlife. Only swift and extreme force can stop him. #Quote by Massad Ayoob
Afterlife quotes by Noel Coward
#140. We have no reliable guarantee that the afterlife will be any less exasperating than this one, have we? #Quote by Noel Coward
Afterlife quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#141. God does not exist, as neither does our hereafter, that second bogey being as easily disposed of as the first. Indeed, imagine yourself just dead - and suddenly wide awake in Paradise where, wreathed in smiles, your dear dead welcome you.
Now tell me, please, what guarantee do you possess that those beloved ghosts are genuine; that it is really your dear dead mother and not some petty demon mystifying you, masked as your mother and impersonating her with consummate art and naturalness? There is the rub, there is the horror; the more so as the acting will go on and on, endlessly; never, never, never, never, never will your soul in that other world be quite sure that the sweet gentle spirits crowding about it are not fiends in disguise, and forever, and forever, and forever shall your soul remain in doubt, expecting every moment some awful change, some diabolical sneer to disfigure the dear face bending over you. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Afterlife quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#142. We Humanists behave as well as we can, without any expectation of rewards or punishments in an Afterlife. We serve as best we can the only abstraction with which we have any real familiarity, which is our community. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut

Afterlife quotes by David Paul Kirkpatrick
#145. Be patient, child!" said the Music. "But she will forget me." "Do not worry, child. I am there. I shall not forget."And she stared out at the planets and gentle stars and the galaxies and became forlorn for she had known a special love."The Universe is so large, just look at it!" she cried. "Believe." The Music sang. #Quote by David Paul Kirkpatrick
Afterlife quotes by C.S. Lewis
#146. Guesses, of course, only guesses. If they are not true, something better will be. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Afterlife quotes by Thomas A Kempis
#147. In that day every trial borne in patience will be pleasing and the voice of iniquity will be stilled; the devout will be glad; the irreligious will mourn; and the mortified body will rejoice far more than if it had been pampered with every pleasure. Then the cheap garment will shine with splendor and the rich one become faded and worn; the poor cottage will be more praised than the gilded palace. In that day persevering patience will count more than all the power in this world; simple obedience will be exalted above all worldly cleverness; a good and clean conscience will gladden the heart of man far more than the philosophy of the learned; and contempt for riches will be of more weight than every treasure on earth. #Quote by Thomas A Kempis

Afterlife quotes by Autumn Rosen
#149. Stop being the shy boy that wants to do everything right and responsibly. I'm sick of your honorable intentions Eli. In fifty years, when I'm old in my bed I want to wake up when the sun shines in my window and know that the person lying beside me was the right choice. I don't want to look at someone else and always wish it was you." ~ Maggie Parsons from Epitaphs from the Afterlife #Quote by Autumn Rosen
Afterlife quotes by Morrissey
#150. Smiths songs certainly have an astonishing afterlife. #Quote by Morrissey
Afterlife quotes by Amy Harmon
#151. . . . death isn't anything I need to be afraid of. I'm not a perfect man. But I think I'm a good man. I've lived a hell of a life, even with all the heartache. Millie told me once that the ability to devastate is what makes a song beautiful. Maybe that's what makes life beautiful too. The ability to devastate. Maybe that's how we know we've lived. How we know we've truly loved."

"The ability to devastate," I repeated. And my voice broke. If that wasn't a perfect description of the agony of love, I didn't know what was. #Quote by Amy Harmon
Afterlife quotes by William Butler Yeats
#152. I have mummy truths to tell
Whereat the living mock,
Though not for sober ear,
For maybe all that hear
Should laugh and weep an hour upon the clock. #Quote by William Butler Yeats
Afterlife quotes by Margaret Atwood
#153. At some indeterminate point in their life cycles, they cause themselves to be placed in artificial stone or wooden cocoons, or chrysalises. They have an idea that they will someday emerge from these in an altered state, which they symbolize with carvings of themselves with wings. However, we did not observe that any had actually done so. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Afterlife quotes by Jodi Picoult
#154. The afterlife is all about overlapping planes. We all live in the same physical space, but on different metaphysical levels, and someone who's passed before you might have reached a consciousness you haven't yet. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Afterlife quotes by Christopher Pike
#155. Even from high above, I could feel Amanda's hate. Or perhaps it was another dimension of my Shadow, my own hate for her closing in on me. Despite all I had learned and seen, I wished to God someone would choke her to death so I could get ahold of her and choke her some more. #Quote by Christopher Pike
Afterlife quotes by Fuminori Nakamura
#156. If there is only nothingness after death, what's the point of this world? #Quote by Fuminori Nakamura
Afterlife quotes by Edward Fahey
#157. [Charlie is dying:]
After what seemed a long while, but hadn't been, Marsh gave Paulette's hand a warm and caring squeeze. "They're here for him," she said.
But their heavenly visitors didn't take him right away. They had to make room for the chaos of modern medical urgencies. To get out of the way of well-trained professionals who had dedicated their lives to holding back Heaven.
Choppers are just as noisy and turbulent as we imagine them to be. One tore in over the hills and shattered every bit of peace Charlie otherwise could have lost himself into.
In an instant the Med-Evac team was all over him. In the midst of that blatant orchestrated chaos Paulette fought to find her peace, and to hold him inside it.
"Hang on, buddy," techs kept telling him. "Don't go leaving us now. You just hang in there."
But they didn't understand, Paulette thought. It was his time.
The chopper made a horrible racket carrying him off. Marsh, Paulette, and Ailana held their peace as its winds whipped their world into a froth.
Harve's face twisted with something that might conceivably have been rage.
Then, all of a sudden, the birds sang, as though someone had given them a cue.
"So that's what it's like," Marsha said, very softly.
"The afterlife.
"My God, it's so beautiful. #Quote by Edward Fahey
Afterlife quotes by Sylvia Kristel
#158. I don't expect too much from the afterlife, I think that I know very well what pain is. When I think of the end of my life, I think mainly: I didn't do nothing, but I could have done more. #Quote by Sylvia Kristel
Afterlife quotes by Linda Collins
#159. Malcolm's friend, Ishak, tells him to be strong. Be strong - it is also a saying used by New Zealand Maori who will urge, kia kaha. My husband repeats to himself, Be strong, as if trying it on for size. Yet he is finding it impossible to be strong. He realises that Ishak's advice is that of a believer, one who sees a point to all this suffering. A superior being has willed it, and there is life after death. Malcolm admires that certainty, that belief. But he does not share it. #Quote by Linda Collins
Afterlife quotes by Mike Jackson
#160. It seemed like it was always autumn in this field - it was fitting really. Everything was shaded with the bronzes and yellows of faded pictures from an old photo album, it was a realm where uncomfortable nostalgia reigned. I noticed it more after my experience in the dream. There I was an actor in the play, here I was a spectator. #Quote by Mike Jackson
Afterlife quotes by Brian Spellman
#161. My son, I don't believe in God, prayer, afterlife or miracles. You may disagree with me on all of these. I'd prefer that you agree and reserve rebellion and independence over important issues instead. #Quote by Brian Spellman
Afterlife quotes by Ilona Andrews
#162. If I lost him here, to this idiotic fight, after I fought and guarded him for two weeks, after I cried and thought he was dying, I would find him in the afterlife and I would murder him again. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Afterlife quotes by Rick Riordan
#163. Most people call it The Book of the Dead," he told me. "Rich Egyptians were always buried with a copy, so they could have directions through the Duat to the Land of the Dead. It's like an Idiot's Guide to the Afterlife. #Quote by Rick Riordan

Afterlife quotes by LeRoi Jones
#168. Christianity, as it was first given to the slaves [...] was to be used strictly as a code of conduct which would enable its devotees to participate in an afterlife; it was from its very inception among the black slaves, a slave ethic. [...] One of the very reasons Christianity proved so popular was that it was the religion, according to older Biblical tradition, of an oppressed people. The struggles of the Jews and their long-sought "Promised Land" proved a strong analogy for the black slaves. #Quote by LeRoi Jones
Afterlife quotes by Tom Conrad
#169. For a more than miffed Midnight, fate was for emperors, fools and soppy lovers: - fate was the self-important egotism of those doing well, the sheer unbearable arrogance of the living and loved. #Quote by Tom Conrad
Afterlife quotes by Amy LaPalme
#170. Can you really talk to the dead?" She gave me the look that I was familiar with by now: equal parts derision, skepticism, and curiosity. "How much would it be? I mean, how much do you charge? #Quote by Amy LaPalme
Afterlife quotes by Mark Strand
#171. She stood beside me for years, or was it a moment? I cannot remember. Maybe I loved her, maybe I didn't. There was a house, and then no house. There were trees, but none remain. When no one remembers, what is there? You, whose moments are gone, who drift like smoke in the afterlife, tell me something, tell me anything. #Quote by Mark Strand
Afterlife quotes by H. L. Balcomb
#172. Heaven is inside us,' Ida uttered in a rather loud whisper. #Quote by H. L. Balcomb
Afterlife quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#173. I have seen people paralyze their entire existence around that greatest of mysteries, shaping their every movement, their every word, in a desperate attempt to find the answers to the unanswerable. They fool themselves, either through their interpretations of ancient texts or through some obscure sign from a natural event, into believing that they have found the ultimate truth, and thus, if they behave accordingly concerning that truth, they will surely be rewarded in the afterlife. This must be the greatest manifestation of that fear of death, the errant belief that we can somehow shape and decorate eternity itself, that we can curtain its windows and place its furniture in accordance with our own desperate desires.

Perhaps the greatest evil I see in this existence is when supposedly holy men prey upon the basic fears of death of the common folk to take from them. 'Give to the church!' they cry. 'Only then will you find salvation!'. Even more subtle are the many religions that do not directly ask for a person's coin, but insist that anyone of goodly and godly heart who is destined for their particular description of heaven, would willingly give that coin over.

And of course, the world is ripe with 'Doomsdayers'. people who claim that the end of the world is at hand, and cry for repentance and for almost slavish dedication.

I can only look on it all and sigh, for as death is the greatest mystery, so it is the most personal of revelations. W #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Afterlife quotes by Kurt Vonnegut

Afterlife quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#176. People live their lives now in fear of the afterlife, and in the process, they forget that they are still alive! And for as long as you are alive, my friend, you have the chance to break free from any bondages whatsoever, that your fellow man has put you in. Your passion should not come from any one religion; your passion should come and should be fueled by, the fact that you are human and that you have been given this life to leave your stamp of beauty and of progress upon mankind! #Quote by C. JoyBell C.

A good beginning sets you up for a great conclusion.
A good today sets you up for a great tomorrow. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo

Afterlife quotes by Evelyn Waugh
#182. Limbo is the place. In Limbo one has natural happiness without the beatific vision; no harps; no communal order; but wine and conversation and imperfect, various humanity. Limbo for the unbaptized, for the pious heathen, the sincere sceptic. #Quote by Evelyn Waugh

Afterlife quotes by J.L. Bryan
#185. If we do survive death, then the next world is veiled from us for a purpose. Regardless of our endless conjecture, each of us will make this discovery individually, whether we wish to or not. However, we do know the conditions of the world around us and its inhabitants; we know these in detail. We can only conclude, then, that we are meant to focus on this world in which we live, and not groundless speculation about the next. History shows that an obsession with the afterlife smothers our concern for the living. #Quote by J.L. Bryan
Afterlife quotes by Sigourney Weaver
#186. I worked hard and made my own way, just as my father had. And just, I'm sure, as he hoped I would. I learned, from observing him, the satisfaction that comes from striving and seeing a dream fulfilled. #Quote by Sigourney Weaver
Afterlife quotes by Cassandra Clare
#187. Wherever Jordan's going - and I do believe we all go somewhere - think of it as the light that will bring him home. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Afterlife quotes by John Green
#188. I thought at first she was just dead. Just darkness. Just a body being eaten by bugs. I thought about her a lot like that, as something's meal. What was her-green eyes, half a smirk, the soft curves of her legs-would soon be nothing, just the bones I never saw. I thought about the slow process of becoming bone and then fossil and then coal that will, in millions of years, be mined by humans of the future, and how they would their homes with her, and then she would be smoke billowing out of a smokestack, coating the atmosphere.

I still think that, sometimes. I still think that, sometimes, think that maybe "the afterlife" is just something we made up to ease the pain of loss, to make our time in the labyrinth bearable. Maybe she was just a matter, and matter gets recycled. #Quote by John Green
Afterlife quotes by Samuel Johnson
#189. How gloomy would be these mansions of the dead to him who did not know that he shall never die; that what now acts shall continue its agency, and what now thinks shall think on for ever. Those that lie here stretched before us, the wise and the powerful of ancient times, warn us to remember the shortness of our present state; they were, perhaps, snatched away while they were busy, like us, in the choice of life. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Afterlife quotes by Evelyn Underhill
#190. Sometimes I think the resurrection of the body, unless much improved in construction, a mistake! #Quote by Evelyn Underhill
Afterlife quotes by Peter Watson
#191. Even by the end of the seventeenth century, fifty years before our starting point, there was no shortage of people in Europe who felt that the Christian religion had been gravely discredited. Protestants and Catholics had been killing each other in the hundreds of thousands, or millions, for holding opinions that no one could prove one way or the other. The observations of Kepler and Galileo transformed man's view of the heavens, and the flood of discoveries from the New World promoted an interest in the diversity of customs and beliefs found on the other side of the Atlantic. It was obvious to many that God favored diversity over uniformity and that Christianity and Christian concepts - like the soul and a concentration on the afterlife - were not necessarily crucial elements since so many lived without them. #Quote by Peter Watson
Afterlife quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#192. Whether or not Project Gilgamesh succeeds, from a historical perspective it is fascinating to see that most late-modern religions and ideologies have already taken death and the afterlife out of the equation. Until the eighteenth century, religions considered death and its aftermath central to the meaning of life. Beginning in the eighteenth century, religions and ideologies such as liberalism, socialism and feminism lost all interest in the afterlife. #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
Afterlife quotes by Jennifer L. Armentrout
#193. I was gonna be super pissed in the afterlife if I died a virgin in this crap hole. #Quote by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Afterlife quotes by Raquel Cepeda
#194. The things that come to us easily, our propensities, are carried on a deep subconscious level into our next life. There are no coincidences. #Quote by Raquel Cepeda

Afterlife quotes by Meg Cabot
#199. See, my special gift is that I'm a mediator. I help guide the tortured souls of the newly dead to their afterlife destinations-wherever that happens to be-generally by cleaning up whatever messes they left behind when the croaked. #Quote by Meg Cabot
