30 Afterlife Quotes to Appreciate Life Here and Beyond

Afterlife is the belief that there’s a new world to come, that death isn’t the end. It is the lingering faith that our lives continue to exist even when we’re gone, to trust in the existence of souls. Believing that there’s life after death brings relief and peace. There’s no fear of death because we may continue to soar. A wonderful possibility. Still, we will never know. It’s a universal mystery that has since made us dreamers and believers. But maybe what matters is how our belief in the afterlife has affected the way we live. In the end, it’s all about living: right here, right now.
