|Limbo is the place. In Limbo one has natural happiness without the beatific vision; no harps; no communal order, but wine and conversation and imperfect, various humanity. Limbo for the unbaptized, for the pious heathen, the sincere skeptic.
– Evelyn Waugh (1903-1966)
|I have lived with the prospect of an early death for the last 49 years. I’m not afraid of death, but I’m in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first… I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.
– Stephen Hawking (1942-2018)
