immortality

A Quote by Ambrose Gwinett Bierce on facts, familiarity, giving, god, immortality, and sacred

SCARABAEUS, n. The sacred beetle of the ancient Egyptians, allied to our familiar "tumble-bug." It was supposed to symbolize immortality, the fact that God knew why giving it its peculiar sanctity.

A Quote by Ambrose Gwinett Bierce on disappointment, immortality, judgment, nonsense, and wisdom

OUTCOME, n. A particular type of disappointment . . . . judged by the outcome, the result. This is immortal nonsense; the wisdom of an act is to be juded by the light that the doer had when he performed it.

A Quote by Alma P. Burton on action, blessings, body, change, death, existence, god, immortality, learning, life, men, mortality, progress, spirit, time, and tragedy

It is in the plan that man should die. The rich, the poor; the bond, the free; the great, the lowly-all must die. Death comes to everyone. Death * a necessary step to our eterrzal progression. But death is not the end, it is only a transitional state whereby we move from one stage of action to another. The spirit continues to live, move, think, learn, and to engage in all those activities associated with existence in our next estate. The physical body is placed in the grave, there to remain until the time of our resurrection. The change called death is ordained of God awl is a blessing to man. It would be tragic if men could never be released from mortality that they might put on immortality. Death releases man from his mortal existence and makes possible his onward progress toward eterrzal life and exaltation.

Alma P. Burton (1913 -)

A Quote by Albert Einstein on authority, belief, concern, ethics, immortality, and individuality

I do not believe in the immortality of the individual, and I consider ethics to be an exclusively human concern without any superhuman authority behind it.

Surely God would not have created such a being as man . . . to exist only for a day! No, no, man was made for immortality.
