Si je prends la mort dans ma vie, la reconnais et lui fais face droit dans les yeux, je me délivrerai moi-même de l’angoisse de la mort et de l’insignifiance de la vie – et seulement alors je serai libre de devenir moi-même.

Death does not concern us, because as long as we exist, death is not here. And when it does come, we no longer exist.

A free man thinks of nothing less than of death, and his wisdom is a meditation, not on death, but on life.

Become who you are!

Become such as you are, having learned what that is.
