Quotes containing the word afterlife


1. We're so terrified of death in Western culture that we have to make up a myth of an afterlife.

It doesn't have to be this big, negative bummer.
- Steve Earle

2. 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.
- John Green, Looking for Alaska
