Death Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

I am a teenage boy aflame with health, strong and virile and pounding with energy. But I get older. Every second ages me. [...] Each death around me adds a decade. Each atrocity, each tragedy, each small moment of sadness. Soon I will be ancient. (2.1.1)

There isn't much difference between living and dying when you look at it this way. Once the body stops growing, it starts dying, decaying little by little each day on the slow march to the grave. Have a nice day!
