Tuck Everlasting (book cover)

Everything’s a wheel, turning and turning, never stopping. The frogs is part of it, and the bugs, and the fish, and the wood thrush, too. And people. But never the same ones. Always coming in new, always growing and changing, and always moving on. That’s the way it’s supposed to be. That’s the way it is.

Natalie Babbitt, born on 28 July 1932, American author and illustrator, Tuck Everlasting.

Don’t be afraid of death; be afraid of an unlived life. You don’t have to live forever, you just have to live.
