Death: Eastern Perspectives
Pages 18

The wise do not grieve for the dead or for the living. Never was there a time when I was not, nor when you were not, nor these other human lords. Never will there be a time hereafter when we shall not be. As in this body, there are for the soul childhood, youth, and old age, even so there is the taking on another body after death. The wise are not confused by this.
