Toss up between:
Our lives are not our own. From womb to tomb, we are bound to others, past and present... and by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future. I believe death is only a door. One closes, and another opens. If I were to imagine heaven, I would imagine a door opening. And he would be waiting for me there.
I understand now that boundaries between noise & sound are conventions.All boundaries are conventions, waiting to be transcended.One may transcend any convention, if only one can first conceive of doing so. A true suicide is a paced, disciplined certainty. People pontificate, "suicide is selfish," while career churchman like Pater call it a coward's act typically because they lack the necessary suffering to sympathize. Couldn't be further from the truth; suicide takes tremendous courage.
