The Bible make it clear that "Man is destined to die" (Hebrews 9:27 NIV). *Woody Allen once quipped: "I'm not afraid to die. I just don't want to be there when it happens." * Napoleon: "What an abyss between my deep misery and the eternal kingdom of Christ!" * Robert Ingersoll: "Life is a narrow veil between the cold and barren peaks of two eternities. We strive in vain to look beyond the heights. We cry aloud, and the only answer is the echo of our wailing cry." * Thomas Hobbes: "If I had the whole world, I would give it to live one day. I shall be glad to find a hole to creep out of the world at. About to take a leap into the dark!" * Sir Francis Newport: "Oh, eternity, eternity! forever and forever! Oh, the insufferable pangs of hell!" * Voltaire: "I am abandoned by God and man; I shall go to hell!" (as recorded by his physician, who expressed astonishment over the emotional torment of his patient). * Isaac Watts: "It is a great mercy that I have no manner of fear or dread of death. I could, if God please, lay my head back and die without terror this afternoon" (which he did!). * Sir David Brewster: "I will see Jesus: I shall see Him as He is. I have had the light for some many years. Oh, how bright it is! I feel so safe and satisfied!" * D. L. Moody: "This is glorious! Earth recedes; heaven is opening; God is calling me!" * John Wesley: "The best of all is, God is with me!" * May Wilson: "If you do not hear from me [again] it could be because I am with the Lord" (in a letter to Luis Palau).
