QUOTES ON IMMORTALITY


If you were to destroy in mankind the belief in immortality, not only love but every living force maintaining the life of the world would at once be dried up. Moreover, nothing then would be immoral; everything would be lawful, even cannibalism.

FYODOR DOSTOEVSKY, The Brothers Karamazov

I do not think seventy years is the time of a man or woman,
Nor that seventy millions of years is the time of a man or woman,
Nor that years will ever stop the existence of me, or any one else.

WALT WHITMAN, Leaves of Grass

I love long life better than figs.

WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, Antony and Cleopatra

Only youth has a taste of immortality.

D. H. LAWRENCE, Lady Chatterley's Lover
