Love Is All That Matters

Elizabeth Kubler-Ross helped create the US hospice movement (she was opposed to euthanasia because ‘it doesn’t allow people time to complete their unfinished business.’).  Her book Life Lessons contains what she learned by sitting at the bedside of the dying.  Here are a few of my favorite quotes –

‘Love is all that matters. Love is really the only thing that we can possess, keep with us and take with us.’

‘Being there is everything in love, in life and in dying.’

‘You are here to heal yourself and to remember who you have always been.’

‘Life will be over sooner than we think,  If we have bikes to ride and people to love, now is the time.’
