They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
-- Laurence Binyon
Comment: Ten thousand years in heaven shall not see us age one second.
Life is eternal; and love is immortal;
And death is only a horizon;
And a horizon is nothing
Save the limit of our sight.
-- Rossiter Worthington Raymond
Comment: Christ came so we could see over the horizon, beyond the veil of death, beyond
the grave, and see a whole new time where time is no more, and youth is eternal.
They that love beyond the world
Cannot be separated by it.
Death is but crossing the world,
As friends do the seas;
They live in one another still.
-- William Penn
Comment: When we forget those who have left on the train before we board, we will surely
miss the accumulation of their wisdom. And when we forget their wisdom, we will surely
board the wrong train going in the wrong direction.
O may I join the choir invisible
Of those immortal dead who live again
In minds made better by their presence.
-- George Eliot
Comment: Keep those who have gone ahead in your heart and mind for some of them are not
dead but are still alive in the Kingdom of Heaven within you.
