Thinking about death

Author: Paulo Coelho

By Paulo Coelho

Zilu said to Confucius (a Chinese philosopher, who lived in the sixth century B.C.):
‘May I ask what you think about death?’
‘You may ask,’ replied Confucius, ‘but if you still don’t understand life, why do you want to know about death. Leave thinking about death for when life is over.’
