The fear of death has been rated as the most common and the second worst fear that troubles us… …The fear of death is largely due to four reasons.

“Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It’s the transition that’s troublesome.” – Pubilius Syrus (100 B.C.)
“A well-spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death. Death is more universal than life, everyone dies but not everyone lives.” – Leondard da Vinci (1452-1519)
