Do not fear death

“Death is not evil,

for it frees man from all ills

and

takes away his desires

along with

desire’s rewards.

Old age is the supreme evil,

for it deprives man of all pleasures

while allowing

his appetites to remain,

and

it brings with it

every possible sorrow.

Yet men fear death

and

desire old age.”

-Giacomo Leopardi
