Do not pass my epitaph by, traveler,
but stop and listen, and only when you understand, move on.
There is no boat in Hades, no ferryman Charon,
no Aicos, keeper of the key, no hound Cerbelos.
All of us who have died and gone below are
bones, ashes, not one thing else.
I have spoken to you truly. Leave, traveler,
lest even dead I seem to you to be a chatterbox.
Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. Marcus Aurelius (via justbesplendid)
