Everyone is afraid of dying, but no one is afraid of being dead (Mgr. R.Knox 1888-1957)
(Embracing Despair, Discovering Peace) Hiroyuki Itsuki: ?In this terrible world of ours, all that counts is that you mentally clasp your hands in gratitude and say your thanks for being alive. Do this every day; do this to keep yourself aware and open whether you are in the grip of terrible suffering or are experiencing boundless joy.?
