Death is not an event in life: we do not live to experience death. If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present.
Ludwig Wittgenstein - Tractatus Logico-philosophicus

German
Der Tod ist kein Ereignis des Lebens. Den Tod erlebt man nicht. Wenn man unter Ewigkeit nicht unendliche Zeitdauer, sondern Unzeitlichkeit versteht, dann lebt der ewig, der in der Gegenwart lebt.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein - Tractatus Logico-philosophicus

French
La mort n'est pas un événement de la vie. On ne vit pas la mort. Si l'on entend par éternité non la durée infinie, mais l'intemporalité, alors il a la vie éternelle celui qui vit dans le présent.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein - Tractatus Logico-philosophicus
