“Dying is something we human beings do continuously, not just at the end of our physical lives on this earth.” Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
“A normal human being does not want the Kingdom of Heaven: he wants life on earth to continue. This is not solely because he is ‘weak,’ ‘sinful’ and anxious for a ‘good time.’ Most people get a fair amount of fun out of their lives, but on balance life is suffering, and only the very young or the very foolish imagine otherwise. Ultimately it is the Christian attitude which is self-interested and hedonistic, since the aim is always to get away from the painful struggle of earthly life and find eternal peace in some kind of Heaven or Nirvana. The humanist attitude is that the struggle must continue and that death is the price of life.” George Orwell
“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” Teilhard de Chardin
“Humans are actually different aspects of the same being. This being consists of love – the kind of love that cures, heals and regenerates. This is the core of our being. We are all beautiful in our essence, our core. We are very beautiful creations.” Mellen Thomas Benedict
“Humans are immortal beings who have been alive forever. Our bodies come from an unending stream of life, going back to the Big Bang and beyond. Humans are part of a natural living system that recycles itself endlessly.” Mellen Thomas Benedict
