Theology of life and death according to Granny D
"As you get older and older, you think, Come on, this is ridiculous - do you really think there's going to be something after you go? Do you really think there's something waiting for you, heaven or hell? Come on. Let's face it. I've led a Christian life, don't get me wrong, but now it's getting to the end of time and I just know. I just know. I will go through the ceremonies but I would be very surprised if there's something waiting for me."
Granny D in Henry Alford's book How To Live, p.21
"If you are afraid of death, you are afraid of life, for living your life leads to death. Until you face death and see its beauty, you will be afraid to really live - you will never properly burn the candel for fear of its end."
Granny D in Henry Alford's book How To Live, p.23
"...a poster caught my eye. It read, 'I was put on earth to accomplish a certain number of things and I am so far behind that I will never die.'"
Henry Alford, How to Live, p.23
