Godless Raven

Accustom yourself to believe that death is nothing to us, for good and evil imply awareness, and death is the privation of all awareness;
therefore a right understanding that death is nothing to us makes the mortality of life enjoyable,
not by adding to life an unlimited time, but by taking away the yearning after immortality.
For life has no terror; for those who thoroughly apprehend that there are no terrors for them in ceasing to live.
Foolish, therefore, is the person who says that he fears death, not because it will pain when it comes, but because it pains in the prospect.
Whatever causes no annoyance when it is present, causes only a groundless pain in the expectation.
Death, therefore, the most awful of evils, is nothing to us, seeing that, when we are, death is not come, and, when death is come, we are not.
It is nothing, then, either to the living or to the dead, for with the living it is not and the dead exist no longer.
