“Although the road is never ending
take a step and keep walking,
do not look fearfully into the distance.
On this path let the heart be your guide
for the body is hesitant and full of fear.” ~ Rumi
“Our life is an apprenticeship to the truth that around every circle another can be drawn; that there is no end in nature, but every end is a beginning, and under every deep a lower deep opens.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
“You’re searching, Joe, for things that don’t exist; I mean beginnings. Ends and beginnings—there are no such things. There are only middles.” ~ Robert Frost
“There’s a trick to the ‘graceful exit.’ It begins with the vision to recognize when a job, a life stage, or a relationship is over — and let it go. It means leaving what’s over without denying its validity or its past importance to our lives. It involves a sense of future, a belief that every exit line is an entry, that we are moving up, rather than out.” ~ Ellen Goodman
“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity.” ~ Gilda Radner
“The end of a melody is not its goal: but nonetheless, had the melody not reached its end it would not have reached its goal either. A parable.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche
“To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.” ~ J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
“The end is the beginning of all things, Suppressed and hidden, Awaiting to be released through the rhythm of pain and pleasure.” ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti
“It is said that your life flashes before your eyes just before you die. That is true, it’s called Life.” ~ Terry Pratchett, The Last Continent
“You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.” ~ Abraham Lincoln
