Where will I Be, when I'm no longer Here?

"For me, the first fact of human existence is the human body. But if you embrace the reality of the human body, you embrace mortality, and that is a very difficult thing for anything to do because the self-conscious mind cannot imagine non-existence. It's impossible to do" David Cronenberg

"God has put within our lives meanings and possibilities that quite outrun the limits of mortality" Harry Emerson Fosdick

"I don't take things for granted, because everything feels more fragile. It's made me wonder about mortality and how long you've got somebody in the world. I'm more fearful than I used to be"
Robin Gibb

"Better never to have met you in my dream than to wake and reach for hands that are not there"
 Otomo No Yakamochi

"To take a photograph is to participate in another person's mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time's relentless melt"
Susan Sontag
