The life of the dead is placed on the memories of the living. The love you gave in life keeps people alive beyond their time. Anyone who was given love will always live on in another's heart.

Some suggestions for you :

True law is right reason in agreement with nature; it is of universal application, unchanging and everlasting; it summons to duty by its commands, and averts from wrongdoing by its prohibitions.

Wisdom is the only thing which can banish sorrow from the breast .

Death is not natural for a state as it is for a human being, for whom death is not only necessary, but frequently even desirable.

Cultivation of the mind is as necessary as food to the body.

Our thoughts are free.

Nothing stands out so conspicuously, or remains so firmly fixed in the memory, as something which you have blundered.

We are all motivated by a keen desire for praise, and the better a man is, the more he is inspired by glory.

Brevity is the best recommendation of speech, whether in a senator or an orator.

The man who backbites an absent friend, nay, who does not stand up for him when another blames him, the man who angles for bursts of laughter and for the repute of a wit, who can invent what he never saw, who cannot keep a secret -- that man is black at heart: mark and avoid him.

We think a happy life consists in tranquility of mind.

They are eloquent who can speak low things acutely, and of great things with dignity, and of moderate things with temper.

The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.

Socrates, indeed, when he was asked of what country he called himself, said, “Of the world”; for he considered himself an inhabitant and a citizen of the whole world.

I conclude, then, that the plea of having acted in the interests of a friend is not a valid excuse for a wrong action. . . . We may then lay down this rule of friendship--neither ask nor consent to do what is wrong. For the plea "for friendship's sake" is a discreditable one, and not to be admitted for a moment.
