Fear of Death

Fear -- not of death or dying but of not having lived.

Fear -- not of suffering but of suffering for no cause.

Fear -- not of extinction of life but of having left no trace upon the earth.

Fear -- not of finitude but of being forgotten.

Take heart -- make this a life not lived in vain.

Take heart -- make this a life not lived for naught.
