Quotes about departure


1. In this life struggle, here I am among you fully cognizant that a true believer has no fear of what God has ordained for him. Those who are visited by fear live only for their present, under the illusion that the world began with them and will end with their departure.
- King Hussein I

2. Humor, for me, is really a gate of departure. It's a way of enticing a reader into a poem so that less funny things can take place later. It really is not an end in itself, but a means to an end.
- Billy Collins

3. Some birds are not meant to be caged, that's all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild.

- Stephen King, Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption: A Story from Different Seasons
