Headstone Quotes

“I'm not afraid of death. It's the stake one puts up in order to play the game of life” - Jean Giraudoux.
Life surely is a beautiful game to play which encompasses within surprises and uncertainties. Life is a game that you play to reach your ultimate destination ‘death’ therefore; you should not either fear death or shed tears over someone’s death. You should not forget that death just takes away the person, but he/she is still alive with you in form of memories which no one can take away from you. You should cherish these memories and provide a respectful and peaceful cremation to the loved ones. One way in which the family members and close friends can pay homage to the soul of the dead is by getting inspirational quotes carved on the headstone of that person. Let these sayings be the replica of the person’s personality and belief from which the people can learn and gain the essence of life and living. You can either pen down one yourself by picking up words suiting the beliefs and personality of the deceased, or you may refer to the below mentioned tombstone quotes to pick what suits the personality of your loved ones.
