Whatsoever causes no annoyance when it is present, causes only groundless pain in expectation. Death, therefore, the most awful of evils, is nothing to us, seeing that, when we are here, death is not come, and, when death is come, we are not. It is nothing, then, either to the living or to the dead, for with the living it is not and the dead exist no longer.

– Epicurus
