More In Death
- "I was never afraid of failure after that because, I think, coming that close to death you get kissed. With the years, the actual experience of course fades, but the flavor of it doesn’t. I just had a real sense of what choice do I have but to live fully?"― Debra Winger
- "Biography lends to death a new terror."― Oscar Wilde
